The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

The Sea of Freedom

I swam in the sea
Over coral reef
Wading sapphire water
While just beneath
Sea turtles glide
To make their way
Amongst the fish
Far from the bay
Where time stands still
And days are long
The gentle lapping
Rights all wrongs
A floating vessel
On the Earth
The sea of freedom
Grants rebirth
