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.

There are red octogon STOP signs
and yellow triangle YIELDs
There are PRIVATE PROPERTY signs
that line the farmer's fields.

The hospital has signs for QUIET
and the bus for WATCH YOUR HEAD
and the park has signs advising
to STAY OUT of the flower bed.

But the sign that is important 
to read and to see 
is the one on the bathroom door
when you're rushing in to 
comb your hair. 

     Have you ever hurried into the wrong bathroom?  How embarassing!  Can you write a poem today about an embarassing moment or situation?  Have fun writing.


  1. Joy,

    And if it's a private one, be sure to lock the door.
