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.

Riding to School

Meet me on our yellow school bus.
We can take a ride.
We will look for seats together
sitting side by side.

     If you rode a school bus today, who would you want to be sitting in the seat next to you?  Can you write a poem about that?  Have fun.


  1. Joy,
    I remember "saving a seat" on the bus for a friend. Good memories. I used to drive a school bus when I was a high school student. Not allowed any longer.

  2. Oh how cool is that? You must be a very good driver with all that practice. Maybe I should think about a poem that tells about our bus driver. The ride is always nicer when you have a friend sitting next to you.
