Here are fifty scary poems to perform. They are in order of difficulty/maturity level with the simplest and most innocuous poems first and the more difficult and macabre poems at the end. Most of the poems are somewhat scary but not blatantly gory or violent.

Drama offers a great way for students to explore their fears in a safe environment, especially if you hold thoughtful class discussions after reading pieces that invoke an element of fear.
