tries on a purple gown
adds an orange scarf.
It isn't right,
for a pink gown.
Still not right,
she dons a pastel blue gown
adds white lace clouds
for a shash.
She's all dressed
a new day.
I really wanted to rite a poem about the Chinese New Year which is today, but I didn't get it done. Today starts the year of the horse. So let me send you virtual oranges, money and a fortune cookie to wish you the very best year
where we can all throw our manes back into the wind and race off to bright poetry futures. I can see a poem happening for you, even now. Have a great Friday.
Can you write your own horse poem today?
Tricia at Miss Rumpius Effect is hosting the Poetry Friday Roundup. Thanks Tricia. She has poems about numbers. You can go here to read more poems by children's poets this week.
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.
