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 started out very small
and grew to be sorta tall.

But it seems, the more I grew,
that it was, the less I knew.

And though I guess, it must be real,
the more I know, the smaller I feel.

     What is something that makes you feel great?  What is something that makes you feel small?  Can you try writing a poem about that today?  Have fun considering this poetry prompt.


  1. Joy,
    Lovely reflection on our size in comparison to this great big world.

    1. Linda,
      Thank you for "getting" this poem.
