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.

My Dog Spot

Spot, my dog barks
when I say, "SPEAK."
He hunts for his ball
when I say, "SEEK."

He's my good friend,
he sleeps on the rug.
He licks my hand
when I need a hug.

He wags his tail,
runs round a tree,
he's always happy
when he sees me.

     Can you write a poem about your pet?  This might be a good one to try as an acrostic.  My dog is a Welsh Springer Spaniel.  He's red and white and my son gave him his name.  What is your pet's name?  Have fun writing your poem.
