The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

A Travelling Poem

Listen to Val ...
Let a poem fly.
Fill it up with words of love
And send it to the sky.

Let a poem sail.
In among the ocean waves
Dancing with a whale.

Let a poem run
To chase the wind and catch a dream.
Fill it up with fun.

Set a poem free.
To find its way around the world
For everyone to see!
