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.

Baby rests in mother's arms.
She's entranced with baby's charms.
Baby's dreams are very deep.
Mother now can go to sleep.
Baby rests his weary head.
Mother now can go to bed.

Can you write a poem today about one thing you remember about your Mom?
Happy Marti Gras.


  1. Thank you for writing poems and sharing them on your blog.

    1. Hey, Joan.
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I hope you like this poem. I liked the image.

  2. Joy,
    I love the line about the mother being entranced by baby's charms. Lovely!

    1. Thanks Linda,
      I wasn't sure if I should start that second line with Mother or She's--but for varieties sake I chose She's. I can remember many a night holding my sons and wondering how something so perfect could have come from me. I think they have grown up rather nicely too.
