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.

Stars twinkle brightly.
The night sky shines clear,
as I think back
upon this year.

     I'm spending a little time today thinking about all the poems I've written this year.  Which poems are your favorites?  2012 has been a good year for my writing, but I know I can do even better in 2013.  I continue to grow and improve in my poetry writing.  For me, this is a large part of being a princess--working each day to grow and improve. 
    Thank you for sharing this journey with me.  I'll try to follow Will Roger's quotation--Don't let yesterday take up too much of today. But, I do need to look back on this year in order to plan for next year.  So your challenge for today is to make a list of the high points of your year.  Can you pick one of the items and write a poem about that?  Do have fun with your writing.


  1. Joy,
    High points,
    Low points,
    Good points,
    and bad points.
    I'll analyze
    them all
    and grow!

  2. Linda,
    Thank you for sharing your poem. This is exactly how I feel. Isn't it wonderful how poetry can capture our feelings?
