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.

Haunted Cinquain

will bite your neck
while you sleep through the night
and their hunger demands they suck
your blood.

   This poem is a cinquain.  It is a five line syllabraic poem with 2 syllables in the first line, four in the second, then six and eight for the third and fourth line.  And for the fifth line we're back to two syllables again.  (2,4,6,8,2 syllables.)  Cinquains are fun to write.  Can you take one of your Halloween words and write your own cinquain today.  Have fun writing and playing with words.
