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.

"Hello, Sun.
We're glad you're here,"
Sings the royal chanticleer.
"I own the sun.
I'm strutting free.
The rising world
depends on me."

  Chanticleer, is another word for rooster.  In poetry, this word is often used when writing an aubade poem, also known as an alba--a dawn song  Today, for your poetry challenge, can you write your own aubade?  Sing a song to the rising sun.  Are you happy when you wake up, or do you regret having to get out of bed?  Put your thoughts into a poem.  Have fun writing.

The greatest achievements were at first and for some time DREAMS.  James Allen
