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.

To get tickets for the play I stood in line,
At the theater on Sunset and Vine.
I took a blind date.
Can’t say she was great.
The seat they gave her was K-9. 

   I am not good at writing limericks although I did once win an Honorable Mention in a limerick contest.  Limericks are supposed to be funny.  The rhyme scheme is a,a,b,b,a.  Can you try writing your own limerick today?

Children's Poetry can make a child laugh.


  1. Joy,
    K-9 caught me by surprise. Funny!
