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 got a summer hair cut
now my hair is short and sweet
and I don't have to worry
after every swimming meet.

  Do you get a summer hair cut?  After you go swimming is fixing your hair a chore?  Do you have to wear a swimming cap to keep your hair dry?    Your poetry challenge for today is to write a poem about hair--your hair, the dog's hair, even the lack of hair.  Have fun writing.

The stars we are given.  The constellations we make.  Rebecca Solnit
