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.

Whoottle, whoottle.
Tweet, tweet, tweet.
I'm forming a band 
to march in the street.

Two-oodle, two-oodle.
Play hard, play hard.
We can all gather
in my front yard.

Hoot-oodle, hoot-oodle.
Our instruments hand made.
We'll get together.
 We'll make a parade.

Tweet-a-lee, tweet-a-lee.
Come everyone play
and wish all the folks
a sunshiny day.

Have you ever made a shoebox guitar, or a comb harmonica?  Have you marched in a parade?  Did it make you happy?  Your poetry challenge for today is to write a poem about what makes a sunshiny day for you.  Enjoy your writing. Your poem doesn't need to rhyme.  Use any form your choose.

Poets are born, not made.  Proverb
