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.

A Flamboyant Woman

A flamboyant woman with lime green hair,
took her alligator to the county fair.
Where upon the gator
ate every spectator.
Together they made an insatiable pair.

     Happy Tuesday, and Happy November.  Happy 11/1/11, unless you are in Canada or England.  Then Happy 1/11/11.  Maybe today you'd like to try writing a poem about one.  Have fun.


  1. Great limerick today, Joy! You're number 1!

  2. Lime green hair? Oh my! A gator that thins out the spectators? Double Oh my!
    Linda A.

  3. This poem was in response to David Harrison's word of the month challenge. The word for November is flamboyant. For other flamboyant poems, or to write your own, check out his blog at:
