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.

Open the door.
Come on in.
The fun is about
to begin.

On the other side
is opportunity.
You get to decide
what that will be.

     Now is a great time to think about what you want on the other side of that door.  What doors would you like to work at opening this year? The choices are all up to you.  Have fun thinking about what you'd like to see, and then try writing your own poem about the opportunities that are waiting for you.  Enjoy!


  1. Very clever, Joy. Will there be one about the window of opportunity? Teachers and counselors should love to share the one posted today.

  2. I hope many new doors open for you this new year!
