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.

Fire burns, fire flames
adding warmth
to love for you.

Fire erupts
from the volcano,
lava sizzles into the sea.

   I've started working on the fire poems, but it is a busy weekend so this will have to do for today.  I thought I'd really have a hard time finding enough variety for "fire" poems, but once I got stated I surprised myself with all the different kinds of fire I could think of. Now, I'm busy doing the research to make sure I've got the information correct.  I do need to thank my sister for all her help and suggestions for fire poems--thank you Clo Ann Smith.


  1. Joy, I love the sound of the word "sizzles" and the image of "sizzles into the sea."

    1. Yes, isn't that a fun word to swirl around in your mouth. I'm glad you like it too. Thank you for your comment.
