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.

In the Kenyan bush
sun shines on acacia trees--
stretch of giraffe's tongue

    1. Thanks, Linda, Did you know a giraffe has a black tongue, and it can stretch up to 18 inches?
      Do you know other animals that have black tongues?
