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.

I don't like Mondays,
I feel so slow.
I am searching
for my get up and go.

The weekend was great.
I had a good time.
I learned and wrote
a children's rhyme.

     I have a friend who hates mornings.  when I meet with her, we always make the meeting time late in the day. 
     I'm a morning person.  I usually bound out of bed ready to go,but this morning i had trouble getting my giddy up to go.  Maybe I'll need an afternoon nap.  How are you feeling today?  Full of energy?  Or just coasting?  Today can you write a poem about how you feel? Have fun. 


  1. Joy,
    I like the line about searching for your get up and go. Do you know the line that states that it got up and went? Maybe you could introduce that line to readers too. I think a poem that is a search for the get up and go would be fun to solve.

  2. Thanks Linda. This is a good idea. Soon as I get some time I'll sit with it for a while.
