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'm poem hungry,
how about you?
When you feel that way
what do you do?

I'll read a verse,
or maybe two
and eat each line
through and through.

    Part of the fun of unpacking my boxes and boxes of books is seeing and meeting my old friends.  I have children's poetry books, rhyming picture books, novels in verse, adult poetry books and chapbooks, craft books, text books, books on the history of poetry, and lots of different dictionaries.  Each book is useful in making me a better poet. When I get poem hungry, I open one of my books and read, devouring the poetry meal set before me.
   Can you write a poem today about one of your books?  What was the last book you read?

Discover word's endless possibilities.--Bernard Friot


  1. I'm poem hungry too. That's why I read your poetry every day possible!

    1. Have I told you lately, how important to me you are? I really appreciate you.
