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.

Shadow Puppets

Cloud shadows
dance over the foothills
turning the landscape
into a puppet play.

    Have you ever made shadow puppets?  Did you make a barking dog?  A bat?  A goose with a long neck?  Try using a light source and make a hand puppet.  Can you write a persona poem from the voice of your shadow?  What would it tell us?  Have fun writing.
