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!
