The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Our Round Table

Listen to Val reading her poem ...
Our table has no corners
There’s no-one at the end,
No-one in the middle
And no-one round the bend.

No-one is the head of it
And no-one gets left out.
We see and hear each other
So, no-one has to shout!

Everyone is equal
And everyone can see,
All the other members
Of our round family.
