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.

Doreen Dragon

Doreen Dragon
dances down the street.
She do-se-do's
past all she meets.

Doreen wears a diadem
on her head.
She doesn't take it off--
even in bed.

Doreen is dainty,
delightful, debonair.
Her diamonds, they dangle
in the air.

This dazzling darling,
she dashes, she darts.
Doreen is a damsel
who has won 
all our hearts.

     Doreen definitely loves jewelry.  Can you see her with her tiara, and rings on her fingers and toes, and ropes and ropes of necklaces?  Can you write a poem about jewelry?  Or do you have a special piece of jewelry that has a story about who gave it to you, or the occasion?  Can you write a poem about that?


  1. Wish I could draw better.... here is another one I can see in my head... and you know I am partial to dragons... cloey

  2. Joy,
    Doreen Dragon--what a creative way to portray a damsel.
