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.

Little Hippo

One hot and sunny day
Little Hippo went
in the river to play.

In the water
he danced and splashed.
Then Little Hippo
on the bottom crashed.

And there he took
his morning nap
resting in
the river's lap.

     What would you like to write about today?  What ever it is, have fun writing.
Happy Tuesday.
