The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children


Majestic creature,
brilliant features,
over plains
you sweep.

Lashes frame
the wondrous eyes
that rest upon
your cheeks.

You reach such heights
that soar the sky,
to feast upon
the branches high.

The herd moves
tightly, guided
by Giraffe’s
inerrant eye.
