Welcome

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.

SURPRISES

Sometimes I surprise myself
with the things I do.
I can use a screw driver
and an electric drill too,
I can paint my room
and turn it blue
and get 100
on my spelling test too.
I can ride my bike 
for a mile or two.
I can do so many things.
How about you?
Do you some times
surprise yourself too?

   Living in a new place, I'm having lots of new experiences.  I AM surprising myself. It is fun when there is something I'm not sure I can do and then I discover that I can and I did.  For your poetry challenge for today, can you write a list poem about all the things you can do?  Can you swim? Can you dance? Can you make a pie? Are you a good big sister?  Can you read a book?  Can you make toast?  Just think of all the wonderful things you are capable of doing? Have fun writing your poem.

   There are some poets who don't mince their words--they chew them.  Jean L'Anselme

  1. The only thing that jumps out at me is I can help someone move. That's what I've been doing for several days. I'm pooped too.

    1. I know from experience that moving can be VERY tiring.

    1. Silvia,
      I know it may sound crazy, but I'm more interested in writing good poems for children than "branding" myself, building a platform or setting a goal of increasing numbers. I understand some people pay money to have others do that for them.
