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.

It takes my Aunt Hannah
time to get ready.
On her feet
she's not too steady.

Oh dear.
Poor Aunt Hannah
she slipped on
a yellow banana.
Now she's sore
from her head
to her can-na.

And, oh dear.
My Uncle Danny,
he slipped too
and hurt his fanny.

      Do you remember the "yo mama" jokes?  I'm thinking of some Uncle and Aunt jokes written as poems. 
My Uncle Bill / rolled down a hill. /had himself /  a nasty spill.
My Aunt Peg broke her leg.
My Uncle Pat is very fat.
My Aunt Jane uses a cane
My Uncle Rudd / slipped in the mud.
My Aunt Bess, she's a mess.
My Aunt Daisy / is a little crazy.
My Uncle Doug / was socked in his mug.
My aunt Grace / fell on her face.

     Yes, I know this is weird and who knows where it might go, but if you'd like to try your hand at a rhyming couplet with and Aunt, Uncle or even a dog or cat, please give it a go.  Have fun.


  1. Fun!
    My dog, Rover/rolls in clover.
    My cat,Tabby/belonged to a cabby.

  2. this one sounds like fun. ILY cloey

  3. Oh goodness, I just thought of a college drinking song...
    My Uncle Bill
    has a still on the hill...

    Did you ever sing that one?
