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.

The best thing about Maine
is their green-making rain.
The chance to feel chilly
makes me feel silly.

The best thing about North Carolia
is all of their barbecue diners.
Their ice tea is sweet
and I love to eat.

The best thing about Arizona
is the desert near Sedona.
The cactus grows high
in the blue, blue sky.

   Oh, I am having fun this morning.  Can you guess your poetry challenge for today?  Start with the line: The best thing about _________________.  Then fill in the blank with your favorite state or town and tell your reader something about your place.  Have fun writing.  You can fill that blank in with something other than a place too.

In children's poetry, the world is full of amazing places.

  1. The best thing about summer
    is family vacations.
    Exploring new places
    or ones with new faces.
