“Up, up and away, in my beautiful balloon”
Oh, sorry, that’s a song written by composer Jimmy Webb.
Colors drifting skyward
I feel a bit awkward
Floating with no tether
Thank god for the weather
Sunny and rather warm
Oh look down there! That farm
And the rows, perfect lines
Suppose they use a combine?
Look at those lakes, oh I wish
We’d take a pole to catch some fish.
This balloon is getting very high
Wonder if you can feel clouds in this sky?
The mountains over there
Getting near would give a scare.
Floating, drifting in the breeze
My nerves just starting to feel ease.
Such a beautiful way
To spend my day.
