The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

My Busy Brain

Flitter, flutter, zip around
Bounce and bop from clouds to ground
Whiz about without a sound
My thoughts dance in my noggin

It’s like a pond where all the bugs
are scooting past the dozing slugs
or flying by on magic rugs …
Did someone let a frog in?
