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.

ONE peach handing on the tree.

TWO ripe peaches waiting for me.

THREE peaches, my oh my.

FOUR peaches baked in a pie.

FIVE peaches, I can't wait.
         Eating peaches is really great.

I love that it is peach season.  This is a counting poem.  For today's challenge can you try writing your own counting poem?  Have fun thinking about things to count.

Children's poets love their subject matter.


  1. I've been counting and sorting items for Vacation Bible School activities. We tied together pairs of donated shoes for a local charity and created a shoe mountain. The theme's setting was Everest. REALLY cool!

    1. I'm surprised someone didn't want to decorate all of the town's telephone wires.
