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.

Big Bear Hug

Toes tap.
Fingers snap.
Knuckles rap.
Hands clap.
Arms flap.
Wrap around you
In a Big Bear Hug.

     This is an action poem.  Can you act out the lines?  Now have fun trying to write your own action poem.  What actions do you want to include?


  1. My kids loved those action poems when they were little. Yours is so sweet.

  2. Katya,
    Thank you. I do enjoy writing the things. How big are your kids now?

  3. Joy,
    This was great fun! You are so talented. You can tackle any form and come out on top.

  4. Hey Linda, Thank you. You do keep me going. On my walk this morning I wondered if there is a gratitude for people who pick up after their dogs day. Do you know?
