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 my house 
while I'm sleeping
a little mouse
is crawling, creeping.

In the dark
he scurries past
tiny feet
running fast.

While my cat
wants to play
the little mouse
runs away.

     Can you write a poem today with an animal for the main character? Have fun writing.


  1. This one is very cute. Nice work.

    1. Thanks, Rosi. I must admit I was ready to stop after the first stanza and call it a poem, but I was having so much fun with it I added two more stanzas. It is springtime and our packrats are having babies. I need to get a cat.
