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.

It's the middle of my week,
neither up or down.
I think I'll sing,
Happy Hump Day
all over town.

I'll sing and be happy
as I go on my way.
Welcoming strangers
on this Camel Day.

    Hey, it is Wednesday.  Have you ever heard it called camel day, or hump day?  What are some other names for the days of the week?  Have you heard of TGIF? Or wash day?  How about movie night?  Or church day?  Pay day is another.  Do you have a math day or poetry day at your school?  Can you try writing a poem about one of the special days at your school?  Have fun writing.

  1. Joy,
    This is a great idea. Of course you know I like calendar themes. Picture day would be a good one for a poem. What about the 100th Day of School? Kindergarteners usually make a chart showing 100 objects. Guaranteed to inspire some great stanzas!
