Hot Air Balloon

I'm leaving town
I'll be back soon
I'm taking a ride
in a hot air balloon.

The noise is loud
when the burners fire.
The heat takes me up
higher and higher.

I float in the sky.
It's a wonderful thing.
Now I know why
flying birds sing.

     I saw a hot air balloon floating on the horizon on Saturday and I've been thinking about it all week.  I'm going to draw a picture to go with this poem.  It shouldn't be too hard to draw a hot air balloon.  Today try drawing your picture first and then write your poem to go with it.  I'm thinking easy shapes, like an apple or a sail boat.  What do you think?

  2. I love this poem, Joy. It made me think of the limerick I wrote for David's (February 19) poetry challenge:

    Have you heard of old man Muldoon
    Who boarded a hot-air balloon?
    His ticket FIRST CLASS
    ONE WAY only, alas!
    Now lives with the man-in-the-moon.

    Good luck with the drawing, Joy. I am sure it will be amazing!
