Kindness Poems to Memorise    https://sites.google.com/site/valueslessons

Read these poems to the class, then give the five poems out on separate sheets to ensure the children do not all choose the same one.
Students, in pairs, memorise their poem and present it to the class. 

Many Happy Returns
Every drop of kindness that you give away,
Returns to you to b
less your life one day!   Beverly F. Walker 

Two Things Stand
Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.   Adam Lindsay Gordon 

Kindness
Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the blossoms,
Kind deeds are the fruits.  19th century rhyme 

Pass it On
Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on;
Twas not given for you alone,
Pass it on;
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another's tears,
Till in Heaven the deed appears -
Pass it on.   Henry Burton 

Little Things 
Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.
Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Help to make earth happy
Like the heaven above.  Julia Fletcher Carney
