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.

The bully taunted,
come on, even the score,
as he stomped his foot
upon the floor.
He was yelling
fairly loud
as he started 
to draw a crowd.
I told him I didn't
want to play,
and then just turned
and walked away.

     Have you ever been taunted and teased?  What did you do?  How did you handle the situation?  Can you write a poem today about being teased?  


  1. Joy,
    Another great one to use in discussions with kids.

    1. Linda,
      I was thinking about you as I was writing this poem. Thanks for reading my poem.

  2. Terrific poem. This should start a lot of conversations and, hopefully, a lot of thinking. Nicely done!
