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.

You can travel by car
or travel by plane.
You can go by boat,
or go by train.
But wherever you travel,
and what ever you do
take me along so I
can stay close to you.

     Here is the question for today--what is your favorite way to travel?  Can you write a poem about that today?  Personally, I really like going on the back of a flying frog.


  1. Joy,
    I hope that flying frog one is coming! I'd love to hear it.

    1. Yes, you should see the landings, Linda. That frog really bumps his bum.

  2. Hi there Joy! Your poem just reminded me that I went overboard on our three library cards today as I borrowed even more books than usual as my traveling companions for our upcoming trip. :)

    1. Myra, Bon Voyage. Our library lets the card holder check out 25 books, so if you maxed out 3 cards, that would be 75 books. I hope you have a great trip.
