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 Puffer Fish

If you go swimming
in a blue lagoon
you might see a fish
who is a big balloon.

Most the time he is
little and flat,
but if there is danger
he puffs up fat.

Stay away from him;
he is poisonous,
swimming too close
is very dangerous.

A puffer fish
has tiny fins.
When he puffs up
he floats more than swims.

     It is fish poetry day.  Can you write a poem today about a fish?  Can you read your poem to a fish?  If you were a fish what kind of poem would you like to hear?
