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 Busy

The spaces all around me
are filling up too tight.
Before I get my job done
suddenly it's night.

I know it is the season
of having too much to do
I will try to do my best
to do what I can do.

And if I don't make it
to get every task done
I will remember
 we all need some fun.

I promise not to cry or pout
I won't beat myself up
I'll just wish you, Merry Christmas,
and offer you a cup.
(Of hot cocoa.)

    Sorry to be so late today.  I've got some Christmas projects I'm working on and my deadlines are coming too fast.  I guess I should sleep less and work more.
    What are you busy with today?  Can you write your own "I'm Busy" poem? 


  1. I will join you for that cocoa, Joy. Let's put away our to-do lists and enjoy some quiet conversation this season!

    1. Oh wow! I feel honored to have you drop by and leave a comment. I do like the idea of some quiet time during this busy holiday season.

  2. Joy,
    Don't forget to pour yourself a cup.

    1. Thank you for the reminder. I made gingerbread cookies today. We could eat those too.
