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.

Soap foams.
Soap bubbles.
Soap in my tub,
soaks away troubles.

   When you take a bath, what goes in the tub with you?  You can use your imagination and make up an answer to this question.  Now, try writing a poem about that.  Have fun writing.


  1. I could use a nice hot soak. I just finished washing my skunk-sprayed dog with vinegar and then with hydrogen peroxide mixed with baking soda. He smells much better, but is pretty mad at me. Yeah, a nice soak sounds really, really good.

    1. Thanks, Rosi.
      I didn't know the peroxide and baking soda trick. I used tomato juice once when my dog did that.
      I hope you got your soak.

    1. Ditto. Is there a national HAVE A SOAK DAY? Sounds like a winner to me. I'm sure all the bath product companies could get behind it. Of course you'd need your soap crayons so that you could write poems in the tub.
