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.

Sunday, August 12, 2012


Sunday is the fun day
the day I give thanks.
Sunday is the one day
that I don't play pranks.

I'm thankful for the birds,
and the flowers and trees,
but mostly I glad that
I get to be me.

Sunday I go to church
and there I pray
to give my thanks for
our blessings today.

     Happy Sunday.  I hope it is a great day for you.  Today, can you write a poem about your favorite day of the week, or your favorite month? 


  1. Joy,
    Your first stanza brought back memories. I remember some pranks that did get pulled on Sunday. That would make an interesting poem.

  2. Oh, dear. You've got me thinking too. What pranks did you do on Sunday? I sang in the church choir so I was too busy singing to get into trouble on Sunday.
