The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children


(After Rishi Pramod)
A beautiful song about a hummingbird
Hummed by a beautiful little boy

His introduction to the world of poetry
His proud parents left speechless

May the words flow freely
And grace many a page for years to come

The Poem Hummingbird, written by Rishi Pramod was published in the inaugural issue of Wee Hooghly from The Hooghly Review
