This is my playground for poetry written for children with ideas and inspiration for writing your own poems. Come on in. Sit for a spell, have a cup of words to swirl around and make your own cup of poetry. I'm so glad you are here. I hope you'll find the Kingdom of Poetry a fun place to be.

This poem is especially for Joan Edwards, Queen of the Butterflies.  It is a form poem called a FIB.  A fib is a mathematical poem  (like haiku or cinquain) based on Fibonacci's number.  The number of syllables in each line is added to the two lines before so that this little six line poem has one syllable in the first line, one in the second, two in the third, three in the fourth, five in the fifth line and eight syllables in the sixth line (1/1/2/3/5/8).

     I hope you see lots of butterflies today.
