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.

Being a Poet!


I can feel blood
rush to my head
as I bounce with a baboon
while bungee jumping
from the Eiffel Tower.

I can sip champagne, slowly
from a fine crystal goblet
so the bubbles don’t tickle my nose.

I can eat cotton candy for breakfast
work in a French perfume factory
wear nothing but smooth, soft silk
pilot NASA’s spacecraft,
float all the way to the moon,
experience zero gravity,
see the earth as blueberry pie.
I can ride on the back
of a humming bird.
I can do it all on paper.

I am a poet!

I love writing poetry because I can experience all kinds of things on paper,  I can go any where my imagination will take me.  
I hope your imagination takes you to many enchanted places today.  Write  poems about it.
