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.

Nap Time

Do I have
to take a nap?
My hands want to
clap, clap, clap.
My feet want to
tap, tap, tap.
Oops, I heard
your fingers
and point toward bed
where I WILL

     Can you snap your fingers?  Do you remember when, how you learned to snap them?  How about writing a poem today on all the noises you can make with your hands?  Or simply write a poem about something you can do with your hands or feet.  Hope you have a jolly good time writing.

    A parent's snap means business. Time for a nap, indeed.

  2. VERY CUTE..... I like it... ILY
