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 Dozen Doves

A dozen doves perch
on the telephone line,
fluffing their feathers
and feeling fine.

Sitting on the lines
that look like a music staff
the notes of their song,
aren't bad by half.

     This morning on my walk, I saw the birds on the line, and like a shape note singer, I sang their song.  It really was a happy tune.  What is your favorite song?  If you were writing a song for a Valentine, what would you say, sing?  Have fun trying this.  Happy Valentines Day.


  1. Hi Joy,
    You see poetry or song wherever you go. I love it.

  2. Oh, and don't forget to dance each day. Thanks Linda
