The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Let's Get a Move On

Let’s bounce along on sunshine,
Let’s shuffle through the leaves.
Let’s wallow in a snowfall
Let’s flutter with a breeze.

Let’s jitter in a gusty gale,
Let’s slosh along in puddles.
Let’s barrage through a grassy field,
Let’s soar with magic bubbles.

Let’s tiptoe through a forest,
Let’s clamber with the flowers.
Let’s flitter in the moonlight,
Let’s leap amongst the stars.
