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.

Mantra for a Tuesday afternoon.

Get your act together.
Do you have a plight?
Just sit your bum in that chair
and write, write, write.

   OK, not great.  But it is a little poem, a very little poem, and it does express how I'm feeling today.  I really, really need to get some work done.  I've been busy with everything but my writing.  I bet you have days like that too.  Can you write a very short poem today about how you are feeling?

There are times when
I feel 
Rather sluggish, and

    Try an acrostic if you're having trouble getting started.
