The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Evening Canvas

Orange and red with pinks and blues
Swirl together in vibrant hues.
Purple cloud puffs frame the sight,
As day fades into twinkling night.

I hold my paintbrush to the sky,
Adding highlights on the fly.
If my canvas just would cease
Shifting, what a masterpiece!
