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.

My manticore is a go-ti-urtle.
He has the head of a goat
and the feet of a turtle.
With wings of an eagle
and a centipede body
painting his skateboard
is his favorite hobby.
So we're still working on manticore poems. Take the head, body and tail, wings or feet of three different animals and see what you get. Can you make up a name for your creature? What does it like to do? Where does it live? What does it eat? Can you write your own manticore poem?
You might also enjoy reading the poem "Eyeballs for Sale" written by Jack Prelutsky from his book PIZZA THE SIZE OF THE SUN.
May you experience wonder. May your heart sing and rejoice.
