Hello. I'm David Windle, a primary school teacher and writer working in London.

All of the poems here are written for use in the classroom. Some have guided reading comprehensions with them. Feel free to download and use as you wish. However, if you wish to republish them anywhere, please get in touch.

Although everything on this site is free to use, if you can support with a small donation then please click on the 'Donate' page above.

If you’d like to have your say about the poems here you can add a comment to any of the poems; you can say what you like or dislike about a poem, or you can write your own poem in response. If you’ve thought seriously about your comment, then I will publish it on Primary Poems.

You can also email me at if you’d like to:

- Discuss using one of my poems in your work (if not simply using in your school)

– Send me a poem for publication on the site

– Ask me to write a poem about a particular subject or topic, perhaps one that you are learning about at school

– Ask me to come to your school to share some poems or run a poetry writing workshop

Alternatively submit your message in the form below.
