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.

Grasshopper hopping
down the road,
he got eaten 
by a toad.

Toad was hopping,
made a mistake,
he got eaten 
by a snake.

Snake slinked off
said, See you later.
He got eaten
by an alligator.

Alligator swam
off to the sea,
said, I'm so glad
I am me.

Until he was caught
by a hag
and was made into
a lady's hand bag.

     Who would eat the alligator?  It is all part of the food chain.  Can you write your own food chain poem today?  Have fun writing.


  1. Joy,
    This one was fun! It made me want to find a jump rope and give it a whirl. Do you jump rope?

  2. Oh yes, Linda. I've worn out many a pair of shoes jumping rope. I saw a TV program today though with a woman who hula hoops. It said in 20 minutes she burns 200 calories. Sounded good to me. Do you hula hoop?
