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.

Lunar Picnic

I'll pretend
to be an astronaut.
You can too,
or you can not.

I'd like to steer
a rocket ship
and fly it to the moon.
 I'd dart around 
among the stars
and not fly back til noon.

I'd take some bread and cheese
with me, and yes,  I'd take
a spoon.
I'd share my food 
with everyone
I met upon
the moon.

   Today I've been thinking about pretend play.  If you could pretend to be anyone, who would you be?  A pirate?  A Viking?  An opera singer? A ballerina?  Or maybe just your dog?  What ever you choose, try writing a poem about what you would do.  Have fun.

    A picnic on the moon. How fun! I'll bring some apples and water.
