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.

Teaching An Ostrich to Dance

Have you ever tried
to teach an ostrich to dance?
Her legs are too long,
her feet, huge as a ranch.

When the music starts rocking
she can’t hear the beat
and as her partner, I’ll tell you,
she has two left feet.

She can't tango or cha cha.
She moves much too slow.
Her wings when they flap
don’t help her to go.

If you dance with an ostrich
you’ll have feathers in your face,
and no one would tell you
you’re dancing with grace.
