The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Paper Snowflake

I draw round a glass
Then cut out the circle,
Fold it three times
Til it looks like a cone,
Then comes the tricky bit,
Ever so carefully,
Snippety-snip, round the edges I go!
Cutting out ovals
And tiny white triangles,
Tumbling down to the table
Like snow
And now comes the magic,
Unfolding the paper,
Quite how it happens I really don’t know …
