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.

I saw an elephant
at the zoo.
His eyelashes were
long and black.

I thought I saw
him wink at me
so I smiled
and I
winked back.

    What are some other animals you might see in the zoo?  Can you write your own poem about a zoo animal?  Have fun writing.


  1. Joy,
    Wonder what the elephant was thinking when he winked? Fun to wink at an elephant. Liked that response!
