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.

Happy Monday

Lying in bed
just after dawn
the sleep of night
is suddenly gone.

I'm listening to doves
cooing away
as I lie here and think
of the coming day.

Monday is the start
of this new week.
There's lots to do
and lots to seek.

I'm making my list
of things to get done.
I'm counting blessings
for lots of fun.

I  hope whatever
you have to do
this will be a
great week for you.

     Today's challenge is to write a list poem about all the things you need to do today.  Can you make it fun and interesting? 


  1. I like this Joy, the 'promise' of it.

  2. Dear Joy,
    Thanks for the good wishes for my day. It's sunny and chilly here in North Carolina today. Seems funny to have weather in the 40's in May.

    I hope you dance your way through the day with joy and laughter.

    You are a blessing.
    Never Give Up
