The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children


Frequently secretly peekety boo
You can’t see me, but I can see you

I am a tiny one, you are a giant
You are the restaurant, I am the client

You are a two legs, and I am a six
I do incredible jumpety tricks

Scratchety ratchety titchety itch
Boy can you feel it when I’m on the pitch

Itchety scritchety ratchety scratch
I am the flea that you cannot catch
