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.

The Library

In the library
you'll find gold
with books to read
for young and old.

A secret world
is what you'll find
to learn new things
and improve your mind.

    One of the first things I did when I moved was get a Hawaiian library card.  I've been having fun getting to know the libraries on Kauai.  And I'm learning how to reserve books on line and how to get electronic books for my e-reader and downloads of audio books.
   Do you frequent your library?  What kinds of books do you like to read?  Poetry books?  Can you write a poem today about a book you are reading or about your library?  Have fun writing.

   The greatest thing Ben Franklin ever gave us was a free public library.


  1. Joy, I'm glad you gotten and are using a library card in your new area. I enjoyed the poems and your conversation and especially your quote about Ben Franklin.

    1. Ben Franklin was an amazing man. I need to do some more research.

  2. How neat! A real library card from Hawaii.

    So glad you are enjoying living there!

    Love, Joan
