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.

Happy Friday

Western Gecko
in striped pajamas
on a spring morning
looked for his mama.

He called to her.
He moaned.  He wailed.
He even dropped
his spotty tail.

Poor Western Striped Gecko

     This poem is written in quatrains, verses with four lines.
     Isn't this guy a cutie?  I found him as I was moving pots of flowers when we were putting a water fountain in my front courtyard.   He was so sweet to wait for me to take his picture.
