The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Pianissimo Piano Recital

Listen to Carol read her poem ...
I practice hard! My teacher says
my piano fingers fly.
He hopes I will perform one day
but … I’m a little shy.

I’d rather play just for myself
or for a friend (or three!)
and when my family listens
that’s crowd enough for me!
