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.

Colonial Folk Rhyme

Kind Sir, let me take 
your keys to Harvard Square.
I will be the bride for you
when you meet me there.
Then we can walk along together,
from here to everywhere.

    It is Saturday, and I'm messing around with old verses.  I thought it might be fun to try writing my own.  Would you like to try?  See if you can find your own old English Folk Song and try writing your own poem in the same meter or using the same end rhymes.  It is a good day for messing around, who knows what you might come up with.  You're welcome to share your creation in the comments below, or leave me a link where I can find where you have posted your poem.  Happy weekend.
