I was born at a very early age, they allowed me to live, but forced me to go to School. That's where I sang hymns from my tiny Songs of Praise hymnbook.
Most of the time, I try to rhyme using the common metre 8 syllables then 6 then 8 then 6 verse style. I've been writing hymns and poems and stories for a very long time and have added 800 poems on poemhunter.com already.

Denis Martindale Poems
* The Cross Of Christ
The jeering crowd like jackals stood, To see what must be done. Though once they thought this man was good, They didn't see God's Son.
The Amazing Spider-Man
Spider-Man has got a secret That changed his life for good, For he could spin a spider's net No other human could...
* The Prestige Of The Poppy
Behold my form, my humble guise, my fragile fashioned grace. Look deep within the giver’s eyes, some noble hopes to trace. November’s here and folks look back to what heroes have bought. They stood as one as things looked black, courageous as they fought.

Doctor Who and The Tardis
From Gallifrey, where Time Lords rule, The Doctor chose to leave, Despite the danger, played it cool, Though he could hardly breathe!
* I Am An Elephant!
It's true, I am an elephant! In fact, I've always been! I've got this trunk way up in front, Stuck here, right in-between...
A baby Panda has to eat, How else can Pandas grow? He has to stand upon his feet, To go where he must go!
Mary, Mother Of Jesus
In Roman times, when swords were raised, And peace on Earth was rare, There lived a girl now highly praised, A girl beyond compare...
The snow leopard stared intently, At all things near and far... While at times, he looked quite friendly, You know how wild cats are.
The Lion King
Two lions fought beneath the sun... Their teeth as sharp as nails And when their fight was truly done, One lion tipped the scales.
* The Prince of Prints
Behold the precious Prince of Prints, By wildlife he is stirred! Yet who is he who uses tints? Mr Stephen Gayford!
The Rich Man And The Poor Man
Two men were walking to Heaven On the day that both men died... At the age of seventy-seven, The limit that God supplied...
It only took one accident To change this man for life, To speed him up in each event, Come sunshine or come strife...
The Little Mermaid
The sun shone brightly in the sky, Crowned with a rainbow there, While seagulls boldly chose to fly, As if without a care...

* The Cross Of Christ
The jeering crowd like jackals stood,
To see what must be done.
Though once they thought this man was good,
They didn't see God's Son.
They called Him Rabbi, Teacher, Lord,
Yet now He was Rome's slave.
So all His claims were now ignored,
For who was He to save?
The nails were driven deep inside...
More drops of blood soon fell...
Once lifted, hoisted, crucified,
His life was just like Hell.
Torment and torture lay ahead.
His scourged back stung and bled and bled
As briars bruised His brain.
His mother wept each passing ...
