These are the honorable mentions in the children's category.

You'll get an idea how tough it was to judge. So many talented
young poets! Congratulations to all on a great job.

Mad about Nuts

By Jarod M., 9, of Bolton, ON

Nuts, nuts, I hate nuts!
They make me want to kick their butts
I cannot stay away from them all
They’re in every grocery store and mall
At two I got this allergy
Why, oh why, did it have to be me?
Sometimes I miss out on special treats
I have to be careful of what I eat
I do not drink from a water fountain
It makes me feel like falling off a mountain
I wear my EpiPen every day
At home, at school and wherever I stay
I wish this allergy would go away
SO I DON’T HAVE TO WEAR THIS POUCH OUT TO PLAY!

Just One Wish

By Erika D., 10, of St. Thomas, ON

I have allergies to so many things,
I wish I could fly away but I don’t have wings.

I have to face it every day,
Because my allergies may not go away,

I am allergic to drugs, nuts, legumes, and fish,
If only I could have just one wish,

I would wish that no one had allergies that could cause them to die,
I keep searching for answers to find out why.

Everything happens for a reason my mother would say,
Everyone has challenges to deal with every day.

When I am older and have learnt as much as I can,
I want to be a Doctor ,that is the plan.

One day I will help other kids like me,
So I can watch them smile with glee.

The Peanut

by Kenna B., 8, of Spruce Grove, Alberta


So much depends upon

a big MEAN peanut

on the grassy ground

with its brown shell.

blueberry tuts

by Lucas G., 5, of Toronto

Nuts nuts and blueberry tuts
We’re all nuts about nuts
But what’s in a nut
That makes us so nuts
It must be the nut

Nuts nuts and blueberry tuts
We’d be nuts to eat a nut
Nut-free, free of nuts
May contain nutty nuts
Nuts are best without nuts

Nuts nuts and blueberry tuts
Food for nutty butts
Squirrels love nuts
And nuts love nuts
But nonuts are the best nuts

Nuts nuts and blueberry tuts
It’s nuts to crack a nut
Even the word ‘nuts’
Can make us go nuts
‘cause nuts are just plain nuts

Submission note:
with some assistance from mom

Vickie’s allergies

by Vickie-Pier D., 9, of Moncton, N.B.

Having allergies is kind of tough
'Cause no one gets it all about this stuff
Having allergies will always stay in you memory
It’s just the way it’s going to be

I’m allergic to nuts, peanuts, eggs and kiwi
And I am celiac, too
Yes, that is me
Cooking is sometimes hard to do

I’m Vickie
I have a lot of allergies
But I always believe that one day
It will go away and never stay



Submission note:
This poem is from Vickie with the help of her mother regarding grammar as she is French-speaking mainly.

My Life with Allergies

by Olivia McG., 8, Burlington, ON

It started as a baby,
I would cry and cry.
A family friend thought that maybe,
An allergist we should try.

The Doctor said milk no way,
Eggs and peanuts would make me wheeze
And no jumping in the hay,
Symptoms include hives, itch, cough, and sneeze.

Now it’s time for school,
What am I going to eat?
I better not be a fool,
And read the ingredients for any treat.

In the future I will help find a cure,
This is the desire of my heart.
I’ll have to go to Doctor School for sure,
I will pray to God to help me stay smart!

To the tune of twinkle, twinkle

Untitled


By Laura S., 10, of Toronto

Epi, epi little pen,
How I wonder what you do?
Stick the needle in my thigh,
Save me so that I won’t die,
Epi, epi little pen,
You will always be my friend.

Untitled

by Liam, 9, of Surrey, B.C.

It's nuts to have allergies
Allergies to nuts
It makes me so mad
I get in a rut
But I put on my EpiPen
And off I do strut
To the park I go
With my friends and my mutt.
