Balloon Ride - Poem by Barry Middleton

it takes the breath away
the bright balloon we ride

it sails above our joy
where nothing is denied

we capture every prize
and cherish every gift

but then we must descend
the fall is often swift

balloons return to earth
to claim all that they gave

and men return there too
beneath a breathless grave
