Red Balloon

Bobbing up and down from light breeze
A red balloon sits anchored in knots on a fence
Waiting for someone to come along and take away
People pass by, but none are right
Red balloon continues to wait
Until a small child takes notices,
Skips up to the fence.
Child eyes red balloon happily
As hands gently untie the knot
Child holds red balloon tightly
As both bob and skip down road together.
