Columbus Day Is Coming With These Famous Columbus Day Poems For Children Below:
LIKE COLUMBUS by Eleanor Dennis
Columbus said, “The earth is round.
Across the sea I’ll go.
Although some say the earth is flat,
I’ll prove it is not so.”
Columbus crossed the ocean.
When his sailors cried, “Turn back!”
He would not listen to their pleas,
But kept the onward track.
Then when Columbus sighted land,
Their creis and fears were gone.
I hope that I shall be as brave
As he was, and ‘sail on!”
Columbus sailed from far off Spain
A long, long time ago.
He had three ships that only moved
When winds would pull and blow.
We’re mighty glad he was so brave
And every year we tell
Of how he found America
The land we love so well.
COLUMBUS by Edward Everett Hale
Give me white paper!
This which you use is black and rough with smears
Of sweat and grime and fraud and blood and tears,
Crossed with the story of men’s sins and fears,
Of battle and of famine all these years,
When all God’s children had forgot their birth,
And drudged and fought and died like beasts of earth.
“Give me white paper!”
One storm-trained seaman listened to the word;
What no man saw he saw; he heard what no man heard.
In answer he compelled the sea
To eager man to tell
The secret she had kept so well!
Left blood and guilt and tyranny behind —
Sailing still West the hidden shore to find;
For all mankind that unstained scroll unfurled,
Where God might write anew the story of the World.
CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS by Gertrude M. Robinson
Columbus was a wise man
Who thought the earth was round;
He planned to sail across the sea
Where trading could be found.
Though kings did not believe him,
And men thought he would fail,
He found one friend, the Spanish queen,
Who gave him ships to sail.
The crew rebelled, the sea was rough
Still this brave man kept sailing on
In spite of sea or crew.
But when they spied America,
They landed with a cheer –
And that is why we celebrate
Columbus Day each year.
