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.

Three little goldfinch
feeling fine
sat upon
a telephone line.

Singing a song,
chirping in fun
they flew away
when out came the sun.

     This morning on my walk I saw a tiny little goldfinch sitting on the phone line next to a turtledove.  One was very big and the other was small.  But, the goldfinch had the bigger voice.  Can you write your own poem today about big, or little?  Have fun writing.

  1. Joy,
    I'm thinking that another poem might follow this one about the goldfinch with the big voice. I hope so!
