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.

Watch the marching band
strut down the street.
Tubas and trombones
keep up the beat.

They're striding on the street stripe
as they march along.
People as they're watching
clap to their song.

   Do you like parades?  If you were in a marching band, what instrument would you play?  Would you be the drum major or a majorette?  Can you write your own poem about a parade today?

  1. My older daughter marched in band (percussion) and my younger daughter marched color guard. Been there. There is nothing I like better than the cadences the drum lines play. Thanks for the reminder.
