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.

Spicy tamale

a little present

   One of the fun things about living in Tucson is the availability of good tamales.  Once they are wrapped up, they are like a present the eater gets to unwrap.  Many families in our area get together at Christmas to make tamales--lots of them.  Enough to give as presents and some to freeze.  Do you like to cook?  Can you write a poem about cooking today?  Have fun.


  1. Hot tamales! What a great tradition. Thanks for passing it on. Is there a Hot Tamales Day? You are a wealth of information in so many areas! I feel like I'm getting home-schooled via the internet!

    1. Hey, I'm just learning these things too and passing it along. And yes, there is a Tamale Day. Try googling, Tamale Day and you'll get lots of information. ;-)
