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.

I look out my window
and what do I see?
A big, round moon
looking at me.

I wonder what happens
when I go to sleep
with the moon up there
and our world 
for him
to keep.

What does he see?
What does he know?
When the sun comes out
where does he go?

   According to my Poetry Friday Anthology for CELEBRATIONS compiled by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong for Pomelo Books, the first Sunday in May is World Laughter Day.  What makes you laugh?  What do you find funny?  Do you know a good joke to make someone laugh?  Can you write a funny poem today?  When was the last time you laughed?  Have a fun Sunday.  Enjoy your writing.


  1. Joy,
    I love the child's curiosity here.

    1. Thanks, Linda. I do like writing in a child's voice for children's poetry. The moon I saw last night is the same moon Christopher Columbus saw. So I have something in common with everyone who has ever lived.
