The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

No Winner in the Broomstick Race

An unforeseen magical glitch
Dragged riders along a wet ditch.
At the finishing line
They were so soaked in slime
That no one knew which witch was which.

About the Writer

Jane Trenholm

Jane loved being a primary school teacher in Jersey and Hong Kong but her favourite job was being an ‘IMPS Trainer’. Sadly, no tiny magical creatures were involved but teaching first aid to classes visiting an Oxford hospital was great fun. Jane enjoys writing for children and is pleased to have poems on The Dirigible Balloon and Tyger Tyger magazine.
