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.

My Pedal Car

In my red pedal car
I pedal near
I pedal far.

I'm leaving now
I'll be back soon
I'm pedaling off
to the moon.

I'm going now.
There's lots to see.
Will you wait 
here for me?

     For many youngsters a pedal car is their first form of transportation and freedom.  If you could travel in your own vehicle, what would it be?  I have a friend who is in New Mexico this weekend for a hot air balloon festival.  She wants to travel in a hot air balloon.  I have another friend who has his pilot's license and loves flying vintage airplanes.  My friends Dana and Susan have a boat they sailed from Finland to Thailand.  Your challenge for toady is to write a poem about a form of transportation.  Tell about your vehicle.  You can make something up.  Perhaps you like traveling in a tin can or on a vacuum cleaner.  Tell me where you'll travel.  Or maybe you want to time travel.  Have fun writing your poem and please, share your creations with me.


  1. Joy,

    I'd like to travel by pedal car too. That way I could take it slow enough to see all the world's beauty. You miss so much when you speed past. Thanks for giving me a ticket for an imaginary journey.

  2. In My Red Convertible by Joan Y. Edwards

    In my red convertible, I can see far and wide.
    I love riding in it because I'm outside.
    I can count cows in the pasture
    And horses at the fence.
    I can feel the wind brushing my hair.
    I can ride without a care every where.

    Enjoy being you, Joy.
    You are a blessing!
    Have a fun day.
