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.

It is sooo hot in Tucson.  Yesterday it was 104 degrees, which is quite a change from the 78 in Honesdale, PA-- that is where I was in the morning before I flew home. 

Now that it is summertime, it is the perfect time for popsicles.  What is your favorite flavor?  I love the red ones.  They taste like cherry and turn my tongue and lips red.  Do you share your popsicles with a sister or brother?  I have a friend who loves the root beer flavor and we each get half of the other's popsicle.  What is the best thing about popsicles for you?  Can you write a poem about eating popsicles?


A chilly little taste
a frosty little lick
a bit of icy cold
on a popsicle stick.


  1. I like Popsicles. It makes me hungry to taste one myself. Do something good for you today!
    Rejoice and be glad in who you are and what you're doing!

  2. Simple pleasures are the best. Sharing a popsicle with a friend is hard to beat.
