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.

The Snail


Lucky the snail
    his house
       a spiral staircase
his own camper van
    neatly packed, ready for adventure
       off to exotic locales.

How marvelous
    to leave behind
       silvery words
          trailing through the garden
             to show the world
                 his journey.

I've always enjoyed trying to read the silver trails left by snails.  Can you find an insect to watch today and write a poem about it.  Maybe an ant or a dragonfly.

    Your silvery words leave a trail for the world to see too.
