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.

A kangaroo
alone and blue
didn't know
what to do.
So she hopped
to Timbuktu
where she met
a cockatoo
who said
his name
was Stu.

Your challenge for today is to pick an animal.  Name it, and write a poem about the animal's friend.  What makes a friend?  What do you like best about your friends?  Have you ever lost a friend?  How did that feel?  Have fun writing your poem. 

     There are many reasons to write a children's poem.
