The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

A Summer's Day

Blow dandelion wishes into the mellow summer breeze,
Play hopscotch on the flowers with buzzy bumblebees.

Licking ice cream quickly as it drips down the wafer cone,
Sipping tea and nibbling on a cream filled jammy scone.

Soaring kites dance against the crystal clear sky,
Making shapes out of clouds idly drifting by.

Blowing soapy bubbles to catch as we jump and laugh,
Chalky notes of kindness etched on to the garden path.

Balloons and super soakers used to conquer water fights,
Campfires and making s'mores on clear starry nights.

But this won't last forever as the north wind blows our way,
So before we welcome the autumn leaves, let's enjoy this summer's day.

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.
