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.

Today is the first of May
I wish you a Happy Lei Day
It's May Day
I hope is is a sun day
I hope it is a fun day
for you.
Happy first of May.

     So did you remember to turn around three time this morning and say, "Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit," to have a lucky month?  What are some other things you do for good luck?  Can you write a poem about luck today?


  1. Joy,
    I love the dragon one! It's a great image! Hope May is off to a terrific start for you.

    1. Trying to catch my breath. I'm running to hard and fast lately. Hope your May is a great one.
