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.

There is a moose
on the loose
rampaging through our town.
He is standing
in the elevator
riding up and down.

    This is a silly nonsense verse.  I got to thinking about an Albatross playing Lacrosse, a Bear in a chair, a Crocodile with a smile, etc. this morning.  Can you have fun writing your own nonsense verse today?  Pick an animal and do something crazy.


  1. Joy,
    Your imagination has gone wild! Get it?

  2. Yup, fun Linda. I've got to run with cheetah feet to keep up with you.
