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.

One foot,
two feet,
the snake
has no feet.

He can only
slip and slide
over the ground
in a quick glide.

Oh, pity the snake
he has not feet
to set a beat
for poetry.

    It is your free choice what to write today.  Write the poem you have always wanted to write.  Write for fun.  Write to tell a story.  Write about something you learned.  Just have fun writing.  Enjoy your creation.


  1. Joy,
    Perhaps a snake is king of rap--all that tongue action!

    1. Even a rapin" snake needs to set a beat. How does he do it? With his tongue? Our rattlers use their tails like mariachis.
