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.

One cookie         yummy
Two cookies        delish
Three cookies     delush
Four cookies       enough
For all of us

            Opps, I'm at it again, can you find the words I've made up for this poem?  I don't think you'll find "delish" or "delush" in your dictionary.  They are both short forms for delicious.
           This is a poem that can be performed with two voices.  Gosh, I should think if I was learning to count, I'd love counting cookies.  Can you write your own counting poem today?  Have a great day.


  1. Joy,
    I'm with you--learning to count cookies sounds like a great way to learn a math concept.

  2. Hey, I love anything that involves food. I have book shaped cake pans that get me baking too often. I'm pretty good at writing with frosting.
