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.

Today is a secial day.
I'm making a presentation 
to my class.
My teacher says I must speak up.
I surely hope
I pass.

I'm trying not to mumble
and to look folks
in the eye.
I have a power point
and I will not tell a lie

because I've done my research
double checked all my facts
there's nothing my presentation
has forgotten or it lacks.

I've made this entertaining
I  should get a good grade.
Then perhaps the memory
of all the work will fade.


  1. Oh my, oral reports. Brings back memories, shaky hands, and dry mouth. Thank goodness I'm not next in line. ;)

  2. What a pleasure it is to have an audience. It makes me feel humble. Thanks for being here Linda.
