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.

In spring, I like licking popsicles,
icy cold, juicy popsicles,
red ones to share with a friend
ones with two wooden sticks
we split them in half
each takes a stick
then a lick

     This is a nonce form called a nonet.  It is made from nine lines, with nine syllables in the first line, and then one less syllable in each subsequent line, ending with a one syllable line.  Your challenge today is to try writing your own nonet.  Have fun.
