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.

Sometimes writing short poems is fun.


Alaskan Grizzlies
fight over salmon.
I hate fish!
They can have ‘em.

If you have foods you don't like, maybe spinach, okra, collard greens, try writing a poem about that.  Who is is that gives you this food?  Why do they want you to eat it?  Are there any foods that you are forbidden to eat?  How about a poems about that?  Food poems are good to write because it is easy to get all of your senses into the poem.  Taste is usually the hardest sense to get into a poem.  Of all the senses it is the least written about.  Can you figure out why?  Put a smile on your face and get writing.
