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.

I'm going to the dentist today.
They'll clean my teeth for me.
While I'm there they'll take an Xray.
I hope they don't see even one cavity.

I brush my teeth to keep them clean
and use dental floss each day.
I want my teeth to be bright and gleam
and I hope they stay that way.

     What is the rhyming pattern on this poem?  Do you like going to the dentist?  My dentist always gives me a new tooth brush.  Do you have sealants on your teeth?  Do you get a fluoride treatment?  Having clean, strong teeth is important for good health.  Your dentist and dental hygienist can help with this.  Can you write a poem about your dentist, or your teeth today?  Have fun.


  1. Love this!! It seems to me that you had another dentist or tooth poem that I wanted to use in our office. Or am I imagining it? Your poems always make me smile

  2. And you do have a beautiful smile. Thanks Carol.
