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.

"Come," said Mother
"Give me a hand.
A costume for Halloween,
we've got to plan."

Tell me what 
you'd like to be
we'll make the costume,
just wait and see.

A ballerina, a monster,
a cowboy, a bum,
a princess, a scientist
a teacher, a nun.

A nurse or a doctor
a lawyer, or farmer.
a rockstar, a model
a plumber, or drummer.

There are so many things 
to be for Halloween,
but now is the time
to start to scheme.

     Have you thought about what you'd like to be for this Halloween?  Your challenge for today is to write a poem about what you want to be this Halloween.  Oh what fun this one should be.  


  1. Joy,
    Halloween costumes are so fun! I hope you hear lots of clever ideas from young poets.

  2. Great challenge, kids love this time of year!
