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.

Chug, Chug. Chug
goes the train
moving down the track.
The engine starts the front.
The caboose brings up the back.

Behind the engine 
rolls the coal car
it helps the train
travel very far.

In the middle
roll the flat cars,
and the box cars, too.
Chug, Chug, Chug.
They're coming to visit you.

     What is your favorite toy in the toy box?  Can you write a poem about it today?

  1. Joy,
    I thought you were going to ask, which is your favorite train car? Caboose is probably the most popular, although box cars make me the most curious about the contents.
