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 first elephant lived in Thailand,
The second elephant lived in the zoo.
The third elephant worked at the circus.
The fourth elephant gave rides in Peru.
The fifth little elephant, the smallest of all,
He kept practicing to stand on a ball.

      This is another of the THIS LITTLE PIGGY counting rhymes.  The fun thing in writing these is you are limited to only five things.  What would you have if you counted clouds, or lightning bolts?  Maybe you could count where rain drops or snow flakes fall.  Have fun writing.

  1. Joy,

    After the kids try more counting rhymes, maybe they'd like to write about why the smallest elephant wanted to stand on a ball. Did he tell you why? :)
