The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Calendar Countdown

Curly, curvy, candy canes
Crackling, crispy, crusty cones
Crinkly, crepe circle chains
Cool, cheerful, conifer clothed.
Cooked cooling cakes consist
Cinnamon, currants, cranberries, cloves.
Choosing, cutting, creating cards,
Corny cheesy cracker conundrums,
Clever conjurors, Cinderella’s coach,
Chipolatas, cola, caramels, crisps.
Carolling choirs, cheery candles,
Crazy cousins, church chimes.
Curtain cloaks, cardboard crowns
Chirpy, chuckling cattle commotion
Convincing carpenter, courageous colts
Cute, chubby cherubs chat
Cool-costumed camels chorus,
Curved crooks, calm crib,
Crowd cry, cheer, clap.
Clumsy caribou Cupid, Comet
Crunchy carrots, crumbly cookies,
Chimney-climbing crimson Claus
Coal? Clementines? Chocolate coins?
Cycles? Computers? Consuls? Cars?
