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.

haiku abude

Saturday morning
rooster crows to raise the sun
sad to say farewell

   Today's haiku is an aubade.  A morning poem.  Can you write your own poem to praise the morning?
   Another special occasion poem is the epithalamium, a poem written on the occasion of someone's wedding.  Do you have a special occasion coming up--Mother's Day, a birthday, last day of school, teacher appreciation day.  If you wrote a poem for the person you want to honor, that would be an occasional poem.  Try writing an occasional poem for your mom on the occasion of Mother's Day.  Have fun.


  1. Joy,
