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.

The sprinklers are on.
I'm running through,
trying to stay cool.
How about you?

    I was out earlier today, driving past a bank with a time/temperature display.  It showed the temperature at 115!  At first I thought that might be the time but it switched to the time display of 2:20.  On the radio news this morning was story about the snow that is still piled high in some parts of Boston.  It is a crazy world we live in.  Is there anything crazy, or something that doesn't make sense that you have noticed?  Try making the experience into a poem.  Have fun writing.

The world can be yours in a children's poem.

  1. No sprinklers today, but Mother Nature did share some rain with us. I hope you have a good air conditioning system! Blazing hot there!
