The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

A Lazy Day

Thin cirrus clouds are floating by,
drifting slowly across the sky.
Warm breezes blow, caress the trees,
where sparrows flit with bumblebees.
From the distance come cricket trills,
as bunnies nibble on the hills.
Just sitting out to dream and rest,
with Mother Nature at her best.
