The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children


Listen to Lawrence reading his poem ...
Don't ever let your sparkle
disappear from your eyes.
Don't let somebody steal it
(sometimes jealous people try).

On days when it's been raining,
I wonder where mine's gone,
then I see you and remember
it was with yours all along.
