Welcome

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've been working on some spine poems lately.  These are long slim poems with only one or two words on each line.  Can you write your own spine poem today?
You might have fun writing from the bottom up.

  3. This is something new for me to try as well! Seems like a form that children might easily... er... gravitate to (heeheehee).

  4. Here's the third example this Poetry Friday that reminds me to pick a form that's perfect for the topic of my poem! Well done in both cases!!
