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.

Let's Be Pals

Won't you please
come for tea?
Bring you doll,
arrive at three.

We'll sit and talk,
have a good time.
I'd like you to be
a friend of mine.

We can eat cake,
us two gals.
I hope we'll become
the best of pals.

      What things do you do when you are trying to make a new friend?  Can you write a poem about your friends, making friends, or how to be a friend, today?  Have fun writing.  


  1. Joy,
    A fun invitation to a tea.

    1. Thanks for another great idea, Linda. You have so many of them. I have a poet friend, Eileen Spinelli who sends me tea bags in her snail mail letters so I can think of her and poetry while I drink her tea.
      Yes, I do think the world needs more tea poems.
