A Free Verse is poetry written with rhymed or unrhymed verse that has no set meter to it.
Wake up to a bright sapphire morning
This can only mean one thing
It’s a go!
At the launch site
And not just from the c-cold
What if a bird confuses my head for a perch?
Will my glasses be fogged up by the clouds?
If I fall out of the basket
And land in a field of cows
Up we go!
Idyllic fields of patchwork green
Glittering lakes - a treasure trove beneath the surface
I can’t believe I’m so high
Feeling like a queen
I stretch my arms out to the sides
Now I’m a bird
I close my eyes and take flight
I feel the wind in my wings
Up with the clouds
My hair, now feathers, sweeps behind me
I am as elegant as a swan
Soaring higher than the Earth
I’m not a bird
I’m not as elegant as a swan
I’m about as elegant as a rhino on roller skates
I’m just a schoolgirl
On a balloon flight
And we just crash-landed
In a field
