Welcome

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.

ZEBRA

copyright 2014, Joy Acey




Zebras
stand together
to graze and slowly herd
kicking, bucking, running in grass
feel free.


     Today's poem is a cinquain--a five line poem.  A syllabic form, there are two syllables in the first line.  Four syllables in the second, six, eight, and then two in the last line.  Can you try writing your own cinquain today?  I hope you have fun writing poems.

  1. Christmas
    Countdown's begun
    The shopping frenzy dance
    Hold on to your pants and your purse.
    Tick tock.
