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 still playing with musical instruments.  I'm wondering if I've gotten too technical this time and think perhaps this one would be more interesting with a metaphor or some onomatopoeia.   What do you think?  Do you take music lessons?  What is your favorite kind of music?  Do you like to sing?  for today's challenge try writing a music poem.  Do have fun.
