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.

sticking out

     Busy day today.  I hope you are enjoying the season.  I put a little bird on the pout in this sketch because my mother used to tell me that if I pouted a bird would come along and peck my nose.  I always thought I was more likely to catch gnats with that moist lip sticking out.  Your poetry challenge for today is to write your own poem about someone who pouts.  Have fun.
