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.

Some call me
a Waller's gazelle,
or a giraffe antelope
because I have
a long skinny neck.
No matter what
you call me,
my favorite is
to be called
a gerenuk.

     Do you have several names or nicknames that people call you?  Do you like some and hate others?  Have you ever been called names?  What is the name you want to be called?  Can you write a poem today about the different names. Have fun writing.
