The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Wish you were Here …

Listen to Attie ...
where the sea is warmer
where the trees are greener
where time goes slower
where the air is cleaner
where fruit is sweeter
where storms are wilder
where wells are deeper
where people are kinder
where dreams are closer
where stars are brighter
where weekends are longer
where wishes are lighter
where the sand is softer
where mountains are taller
where smiles are wider
where worries are smaller.
