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 a little bit worried
about the hurricane.
The winds will blow
and it will rain.
We've got flashlights
with fresh batteries
a transistor radio
if we lose electricity.
School has been cancelled
for the next two days.
I've got books to read
and board games to play.
Dad says I shouldn't worry
as I go to bed this night
and I hope when I awake
everything will be all right.

     What is the weather like at your house?  What do you like to do when school is cancelled?  I hope you have fun writing a poem today.  Every day is a great day for writing poems.
