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.

Where are we going?
What shall we do?

Put on your puddle boots.
grab your umbrella too.

    We have been having monsoon rains.  It is fun to have rain.  The cacti plump up with water.  The creosote bushes blossom.  The Paloverde trees get new leaves, and if we are very lucky, we get to go out in the rain and it feels wonderfully cool.
     Lickety-spickety is a nonsense word which can mean hurry up; can you try writing a poem today that uses a rhyming nonsense word in the poem?  Have fun writing.
