The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

I love you Earth

Listen to Jacoby ...
From the highest of hills,
To the depths of the sea,
From the largest whale,
To the tiniest bee.
From the lightest of feathers,
To the heaviest stone,
From the brightest rainbow,
To a cavern's darkest tone.
From the sandiest desert,
To the greenest grass,
From the icy glaciers,
To the widest mountain pass.
From the thousands of cultures,
To the language they speak,
From each beautiful race,
To the love we seek.
From the spikiest cactus,
To the prettiest rose,
I love you Earth,
From my head to my toes.

About the Writer

Jacoby Crane

Jacoby is an eccentric artist living in Derbyshire. They spend their time baking, making peculiar things, doodling doodles and writing oddities, currently they're focusing on poetry and working on a children's fantasy novel called Lumi. Jacoby's inspiration mostly comes from their unusual dreams and the weirdly wonderful things their kids quote, but their muse comes in the forms of Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell.
