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.

Angel Trumpet

This morning there was a green spider on the Angel Trumpet flower.

This is a persona poem in the voice of the spider.

I went to a jazz club
late last night.
Everything was in
black and white.

I jumped on the stage
in my green suit,
grabbed a trumpet
to toot, toot, toot.

     Find a comfortable place to sit for a while.  Make a list of all the sounds you hear.  Can you write a poem using some of the sounds?
    Have fun writing.
