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.

Today is a me day,
just like a snow day.
It is a free day,
a take things slow day.
I'm taking a bath,
won't give emails a look.
I'm doing my nails
and reading my book.

   I have a friend who is under the weather today.  He's taking a me day.  What do you like to do when you take a me day--a day just for you?  Every so often we all need to take a day when we let obligations slide and we just do nothing but what we want to.  Can you write a poem about your kind of me day?  Have fun writing.

I am a poet: I am always hungry. Theodore Roethke


  1. What a fun poetic tribute to something most of us don't do enough of! And, yet, time "off" feeds poems, doesn't it? Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Robyn for stopping by, reading my poem and especially for leaving your comment. I wasn't sure if most kids would know what a "ME" day was, so I included it in a poem. How are your daughter's wedding plans going? I'm looking forward to lots of pictures.

  2. I love this and I want a me day! So much fun. Years ago I used having a snow day as a writing prompt with my high school students in San Jose, CA. They didn't know what the heck I was talking about!
