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.

  1. Fantastic haiku, Joy. I love dragonflies. Did you know that at least one variety lives in the mud for years before flying about above ground? Talk about having a long wait...

  2. Thanks Linda,
    Did you know that they are also called Grandma's darning needles? Dragonflies are such amazing creatures.
