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 May Day
cool, clear water flows
from the garden rock fountain
a cottontail drinks
You know this classic haiku form
of a three line poem, on a single breath, 5-7-5 syllables in each line.
(7-5-7 is OK, too.)
