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.

Oh, yes! I want to scream.

I saw a panda

eating ice cream.

The bamboo flavor,

he gave it a lick.

The panda loved it;

he ate it up quick.

    What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?  Do you know that zoos often make nutritious popsicles for the animals to cool off during the summer heat?  Does the zoo near you do this?  What is your favorite zoo animal?  Can you write a poem today about what the summer is like for that animal?  If it went on a vacation, where would the animal go?  Have fun writing your poem.

Ice cream, like children's poems, comes in

 all sorts of flavors.
