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'm Sorry

I'm sorry, I almost
Forgot my chores today.
I was busy writing
And didn't take time to play.

     I love writing poetry.  I especially love writing poems for children.  It seems like play to me.  So sometimes when I get really busy, I forget that I need time to play too .  What did you do today?  Can you write a poem about what you did or saw?


  1. I thought writing was play for you.

    1. Cloey,
      Yes, I do love playing with poetry, but it is work too. I try to be like Tom Sawyer, making poetry so much fun that everyone wants to join in.

  2. Play time is so important. It always takes precedence over chores!

    1. Way to go, Rosi! I can never find enough people to play poetry with me. I'm certainly glad you're here. Thank you for leaving a comment.
