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.

I feel so lucky,
I'm so glad.

Today was one of the best,
I've ever had.

The weather was cold.
The skies were gray.
But I still had
a magical day.

I learned a lot.
Gave the booths a look.
Enjoyed myself
at our Festival of Books.

     Today I'm going back to the festival to hear Floyd Cooper, Cinda Williams Chima, Nancy Bo Flood, Charline Profiri,, Peter Nelson, Guy Porfirio, Chris Gail, R. L. Stein and many more.  there is more to do than I have time for.  I hope you have a great Sunday too.
