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've wasted another day
looking out my window
watching the hawk
slowly spiral in circles
his wings stretched wide.
He's been out in the heat
working, drifting, floating.
I like to think he's searching
for that snake I almost 
stepped on this morning.

    Here the day is almost gone and I still have lots of work to do.  What was on your TO-DO list today?  Can you write a poem about one of the things on your list?  Have fun writing.

With Children's Poetry you can create the life you've always dreamed of.


  1. What a good way to waste a day. I like this poem a lot.

    1. Thanks, Rosi. It is a crazy little thing.

  2. Joy,
    This is for you. I would never say you wasted the day away. It wa a Frederick kind of day. Frederick by Leo Lionni
