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.

It's Spring!

Spring arrives
and all the world is green,
each green is a green
unlike any other.
Announcing a new season
from the neon
of new little fists
held tightly on sleeping tree branches
fingers eager to unfurl;
to the dark green of tall saguaros,
and deep, dusky green of eucalyptus
each green unique as a fingerprint,
gathering into itself
the joy and sunshine
of celebrating Spring.

     Happy first day of spring.  I hope there isn't any snow where you are.  Your poetry challenge for today is to write your own spring poem.  What do you like to do during spring?  Fly a kite? Watch frogs?  What is your favorite thing about spring?  If Spring had advice for you, what would it be?  Have fun writing.


  1. Happy spring to you as well. I have written many spring poems. Spring does inspire ideas for poetry.
