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.

If I were hot cocoa
And you were the cup
I'd warm you,
you'd hug me
then I'd be drunk up.

      I've been playing with taking two objects and putting them together to see how they would interact.

If I were the water
and you were the pool,
we'd warm in the sunshine
and keep swimmers cool.

If I were a dog
and you were my rug
would you keep me warm,
would you give me a hug?

If I were a sea turtle
and you were the sea
would we swim with the dolphins,
would you want to be me?

If you were paper
and I were a pen
we'd write children's poetry.
Let us begin.

So, here is your challenge for today--take two (or more objects) and put them together.  See what you get for your poem.  Have fun experimenting and writing.


  1. Cute idea. I really like the dog/rug poem. Thanks for sharing these.

    1. Thanks Rosi,
      I like the idea of rubbing two things together to see what would happen.
