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.

Ripple of air
blown between
and lips.
A reverberation
happens there
when air flows.
Feel the tickle
on your tongue.

    A fun stage of development for babies is when they learn how to blow raspberries.  What are some of the funny sounds you can make with your mouth?  Can you write a poem about this silly subject?  Have fun writing.
    Happy Boxing Day.  Do you know why the day after Christmas was called Boxing Day?  It is a holiday still celebrated in Great Britain.


  1. Joy,
    This reminded me of a special on the Cosby show with a zerbert. I hope this link comes through. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jq4L5Cb40pk

      The link worked for me. It was too funny and it was interesting to see a very young Bill Cosby with a very young family. Thanks for the memories.
