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.

Do not lie,
or tell fibs.
You know it hurts
when your elbow
jabs my ribs. 

 Have you ever accidentally jabbed someone in the ribs?  Did someone do it to you? What did you do?  What did you say? Can you write a poem about that today?

Ivory, apes and peacocks all love children's poetry.


  1. Rib jabs do hurt, accidental or on purpose. What can we propose instead of a jab when teasing? How about introducing a new phrase like: Tease Alert, Teasing, or NOT. Anything instead of a jab.
