Balloons for a Party

I played with words of the original Birthday Balloon rhyme (I just can’t leave well enough alone), and I used  lots of different synonyms for pretty – gorgeous, beautiful, bright, lovely and fine to extend vocabulary

 Here are balloons for a party
Because it’s my birthday today.
I have balloons for all of my friends
Who are coming over to play.

Here is a pretty blue balloon,

As blue as the summer skies.

And here is a bright red balloon,

The best that you can buy!

Here is a gorgeous yellow balloon,

As yellow as bright sunshine.

And here is a beautiful purple balloon,

Like purple grapes from a vine.

Here is a lovely orange balloon,

Like oranges from the store.

And here is a fine white balloon,

And now there are no more!
