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 wish I were
a soccer player
kicking the ball
upon the grass
and if you kicked
the ball to me
I promise
I will pass.

     I'm still having fun writing "I wish..." poems.  It is Saturday and I'm watching the World Cup soccer games, so this is what you get.  Would you like to try writing your own soccer poem?  Have a great weekend.


  1. Dear Joy,
    I wish I lived close by your side. Thanks for your poetry and energy.
    Love, Joan

    1. Me too, me too, Joan. I wish we lived closer. But isn't it wonderful that we have the internet and poetry to bring us closer together?
      Thanks for stopping by to visit and leave a comment. You are a special friend.
