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.

Lucy Sabrina Miranda Lu
would not learn to tie her shoe.

Her mother, her father, her grandmother too
were worn out from tying as Lucy Lu grew.

Her laces got dirty and splattered with mud.
Her shoes were soon all covered in crud.

Last Monday Lucy Lu 
tripped on her lace.
She fell on the ground,
got dirt on her face.

Lucy thought of a plan
so her laces would not trip her.
Now, Lucy Sabrina Miranda Lu
goes barefoot
or she wears
her slippers.

    Do you know how to tie your shoes?  Do you know how to make your bed? Today's poetry challenge is to write a poem about something you do to take care of yourself.  Do you put your seatbelt on in the car?  Do you make your breakfast?  Have fun thinking about all the things you do and have fun writing your poem.

Fill your poetry with music.


  1. I love this character's name as well as Peter's. You are so creative. I am glad Lucy Lu finally found a way to solve her problem. I bet the rest of the family is glad too!

    1. Of course, everyone is happy and they all lived happily ever after in a velcro house.
      I love happy endings.
