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.

Happy Memorial Day.
Thanks to all the veterans
who fought to keep us free.
Today we'll remember folks
who fought for you and me.

    Do you have any special plans for this holiday?  Can you write a poem about one of the things you are doing today?  (It can even be a poem about writing a poem, and that is called an ars poetica.)


  1. Joy,
    Thanks for posting such an appropriate poem.
