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.

Little Pumpkin Pies

Five little pumpkin pies
cooling on the window sill.
A dog raced by and grabbed one
then he ran up the hill.

Four little pumpkin pies
cooling in the sun.
Daddy walked by
and he ate one.

Three little pumpkin pies
on the counter rest.
Preacher comes to eat lunch
Mom gives him the best.

Two little pumpkin pies
planning on some fun.
Grandma sneaks a pie away
now there is just one.

One little pumpkin pie

is left here to say
we hope you have
a Happy Thanksgiving Day.

      There was a message left on my phone yesterday from my friend Sue McDowell who said, "Sorry I missed you, I guess you are out writing about five little pumpkins."
    h  So, Sue, here it is.  Hope you have a great day.
