The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

A World Full of Poems

Here's Attie ...
If I could pay with poems
I'd sail the seven seas
I'd buy a mansion in the sky
I'd fill my room with trees.

I'd dress in silk from dancing worms
I'd eat the finest meats
with a glass of tears-of-unicorn
and sumptuous sugared treats.

If I could pay with poems
I'd write a million, so
I could help the world get better –
I thought you'd like to know.
