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 Quick Mouse
A gray mouse scampered by.
The lion said,
"Stay and play."
squeaked the mouse
and hurried away.
Lazy Lion is looking for a friend. He thought Mouse would be his friend. But, Mouse ran away. Why do you think Mouse ran? How do you think Lion felt? How do you think Mouse felt?
Some schools have a "friendship" bench. When a child needs someone to play with they sit on the bench until another child comes to ask them to play. Does your school have a friendship bench?
Can you write a poem today about being friends or friendship? Have fun writing.
A person of great fortune counts his wealth in friends, but you only really need one good friend.
