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.

Earth keeps
daffodil and jouquil bulbs,
and holds tree roots.

Earth turns
fallen tree leaves
into rich soil.

Earth grows
grass in pastures
for cows, horses, deer and rabbits.

Earth holds
gold and silver
rubies, granite and marble.

Earth trembles
with quakes
shifting tectonic plates.

Earth changes
with rain, fire, wind, and snow
sometimes fast, sometimes slow.

makes our world
to enjoy and protect.

     I'm enjoying working with these three line verses.  They're called tercets.  Can you try writing a three line poem today?  Have fun writing.


  1. Lots of good in this dear old earth, Joy. The poem makes a nice tribute!
