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.

Played hard all day
with blocks
and trucks
and reading books.

I've had 
a busy day.
I think
I want
to take
a nap.

What did
you do

    Quick, how do you fell right at this moment?  Are you happy, sad, disappointed, glad, mad, tired, frustrated?  Can you describe how you feel?  Our emotions are a slippery thing, and that is why we need to write about them.  Have you ever thought about how a young child learns to label his emotions?  So just for fun today try writing a poem about how you are feeling.  You're welcome to share your poem in the comments below.

Have fun writing.


  1. Struggled

    Muddled in sadness.
    The characters I am writing
    Are me now.

    This is when
    I should live through them.

  2. Fun, Zantippy. Very haiku-ish.
    Well done.
