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.

Leaf Cutter Ants

No litter on the jungle floor
ants cut it up and then do more
they carry the leaf pieces far away
having a happy leaf cutter day.

     If you look carefully, you'll see the ants. each tiny little leaf piece is being carried on the back of an any. 
     Do you remember the chant about the ants--the ants go marching one by one?
It is a counting chant. so here is your challenge for today, write a poem about an ant, or write a counting poem.  Have fun writing.


  1. it has been awhile... I really like the bats. It is really cold here. ILY cloey

  2. Leaf Cutter Day could be a fun, creative one. You've got me thinking.
