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.

Kicking Leaves

Walking to school
kicking the leaves
my feet make
a swishing breeze.

Look at the colors
so many hues
red, yellow, greens
orange, purple, blues.

The leaves swirl
in my breeze
making a rainbow
beneath my knees.

     Can you write your own poem about the leaves?  Have fun.  You might also want to read Donald Hall's famous poem Kicking the Leaves.
