The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Welcome aboard The Dirigible Balloon, the publication with lots and lots of poems for children!

The crew are busy organising a flight to remember, with new places to visit, different creatures to see and a sky load of fun and adventure as well. Written and read by poets from around the world, with a fresh batch uploaded every month, our poems will delight, intrigue and astound you.

Come have a look and prepare to lift off in The Dirigible Balloon!

The Dirigible Balloon

With our sandwiches packed
and our bottles of juice,
under fluffy white clouds and the sun,
we all climb aboard
this balloon of delight
in a search for new places and fun.
With friends by our sides,
happy faces all round
and excitement in everyone’s eyes,
our dirigible lifts
off the ground like a bird
to adventure high up in blue skies …
