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.

If crayons had wings
we'd see more mirth.
They'd color us rainbows
while circling the earth.

Your dog could be pink,
your brother have green hair,
and colorful kangaroos could
bounce through the air.

So, hand me my crayons,
the ones with wings,
I'm flying to color
marvelous things.

  What adds color to your life?  Try writing a colorful poem today.  Imagine the things you see in different colors today.  What places will you fly to?

A book should serve as the ax for the frozen sea within us.  Franz Kafka  Thanks to my friend Tabatha Yeats for this quotation.  She sent me a group of bookmarks, each with a different quotation.


  1. Colorful and fun! Love the way your mind works!

    1. And I love the way your mind works. You always give me new ideas.
