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.

Chirp, Chirp Tweet

The little bird sings
chirp, chirp tweet--
its happy little song.
Chirp, chirp, cheep,
chirp, chirp, tweet
all day long.

     I've got to tell you, I MUST, really love writing poetry because I've been working on poems all day and I just looked up at the clock and realized it was almost 5 o'clock!  I haven't eaten lunch, I haven't started dinner.  I'm in trouble because I'm going to be running late until I go to bed.  But, I'm feeling wonderful because I got some good work done today.  For your poetry prompt, how about writing a couplet about being last or behind?  Have fun writing. 


  1. Well, I don't think the birds are behind, Joy. I hear them chirping each morning now. Glad to hear about your good day!

  2. Joy,
    You substituted one kind of work for another. I am glad your day brought joy to you!

  3. Sounds like a very satisfying day!

  4. Good for you. I had the awful kind of day that took me away from my writing, but I am also behind on everything else. Tomorrow will be a better day!
