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.

I want to be the girl
you say has moxie and grit,
one with pith and patience
and stamina to stick to it.

I want to be the girl
with pluck, spunk and persistence;
to be remembered for backbone,
toughness and my endurance.

I want to be the girl with gumption,
chutzpah, dash, and bravado.
Let me be the touchwood,
the amadou, to help poetry flames grow.
