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.

A pen is a castle
where I want to be
writing so wild
so daring
and free.

Yes, give me a pen
that I may write
happy all day
and into
the night.

    Now it is your turn, pick up your pen, your pencil or use a keyboard, and write.  Where would you like your writing to take you?  What adventure would you like to have?  Dream!  And then write your poem.  Have fun.


  1. Joy,
    I love the image. Well done. I am imagining my computer as the magic carpet ride I always wanted to take.

    1. WOW! Linda, I liked the alliteration of computer and carpet, but when I tried that combination in my mouth it felt really heavy. Indeed a good internet connection can take you to any place in the world, but our imagination can take us to even more places.
      the first time I rode a giant slide they gave us pieces of carpet to sit on. Have you ever had that kind of carpet ride?
