The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Hot Chocolate Day

Friday is Hot Chocolate Day
in the school library
where Mrs Brownlee’s stories
are wrapped in a velvety aroma.
Delicious adventures.
Mouthwatering mysteries.
Sip and listen.
Sip and listen.
Sip and listen
as my worries melt away
with the marshmallows.
