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.

Today is Friday.
Make it a fun day.
Live for today,
not tomorrow.
Try to be happy,
let go of sorrow.

    What are you doing today to have fun?  What makes you happy a bout today?  Can you write a poem about that?  It would make me happy.  Have fun writing.

    1. Thanks Catherine. I was trying for a short poem that would work as a memory piece with lots of directions and topics of conversation a child could engage with.
