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 gather to me
happiness of bird song,
joy of coyote yip,
gladness of green,
and all the greatness 
of yellow blooming.
I open my heart wide
to the hope for a bright
and jubilant future--
a fresh and new

   Use your five senses today to make a list of things you see, hear, smell feel and taste about spring.  Can you use your list to write your own poem?  Have fun.


  1. Nice springy poem. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. You are very welcome, Rosi. thank you for reading my little poems--and for leaving a comment. I know it isn't easy.

  3. Hi Joy,
    This reflects your poetic adventures: you gather experiences, write about them, and then you open up wide for your readers' delight.
