Annette Wynne (1919-1922 fl.) was an American children's poet.[1]


In 1919, her debut collection of children’s poems, For Days and Days: A year round treasury of child verse was published, followed by Treasure Things in 1922.[1]


Wynne wrote in a preface to For Days and Days:

The aim of these verses is to please children and others. They Were written, and arranged calendar-wise, for school children's entertainments. Most teachers and parents find a dearth of usable material for young people's recitations; it is a commonplace that all good poetry is not good for such purposes. An attempt has been made to furnish, for all sorts of days, material that is close to the children's experience and at the same time timely. This book, therefore, is offered in the hope that it will facilitate the search of parents and teachers for joyous relaxation in the Land of School and otherwheres.[2]
