The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Stiffkey Marsh

Silently she drifts
Ever forwards in time
A blanket for the dusk
Of a moonlit marsh

Rolling whisps carry the air
Swirling in a playful breeze
Stealthily she creeps
Above a samphire cushion

Curlews snuggle shriek
Their last chorused cry
Lost in the ether of
A tidal dream
