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'm standing
in the doorway
and I'm looking out.
Inside is safe
there is doubt.

Should I stay here
or go out?
When inside is safe
and outside
holds doubt.

  2. Hello Joy, Thank you for stopping by www.readerkidz.com We are revamping our website and will reopen after a "gone fishing summer break." During April of this year we focused on the best in new poetry for kids. Maybe you will find another nugget of a book.

    Thanks for keeping in touch. My new "hybrid" poetry and narrative-photography book is coming out soon: COWBOY UP, RIDE THE NAVAJO RODEO by BoydsMills Press. I hope you will enjoy it! All the best - Nancy Bo Flood
