The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Lost Poem

Has anyone seen my poem?
Last spied wearing rainbow shoes
And a hat made of snow.
If found, please do not touch.
Approach cautiously,
Poem can be very temperamental
Was once caught throwing similes
At unsuspecting passersby.
Responds well to kindness,
And new words whispered as it wanders.
