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.

Sunday White flower

large white flower
with white whiskers
rippling in a breeze
like Granpa's beard.

Some say
Angel Trumpet,
I say sweet mystery
scenting the afternoon air,
playing a tune for me.

     This is a huge flower, as big as a salad plate.  If smells very nice. Do you have a favorite flower? What color is it?  Would you like to try writing a poem about a flower today?  Have fun.


  1. Joy,
    I love that the angel trumpet is playing a tune for you. Great figurative language.
