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 met a very clever, verbal two year old yesterday named Wyatt.  He was wearing green rubber clogs.  This poem is for him.

In my green froggy clogs
I can jump, jump, jump.
Over old, dead tree logs
and traffic safety bumps.

    OK now it is your turn.  Today is Thursday, and I'm thirsty.  Can you write a poem about things you like to drink?  Have fun.  (Perhaps a simple couplet.)  You are welcome to leave your poem in the comments below.  Thank you. 
  Thanks for coming by for a visit.


  1. I like this one... can see kids going jump jump jump... ILY cloey

  2. Joy,
    Love how your brain went from green shoes to frogs. Creative mind! I also like that the child jumps over dead tree logs and then is able to return to a "civilized world" and jump over man-made "logs." I never saw that parallel before. You're good!
