Great Poetry for Children by Jody Weissler

A Pilot

by Jody Weissler


I would like to be a pilot

And fly up in the sky.

I will take my plane around the world

And always fly real high!


I would like to be a pilot.

And soar above the rain!

I’d take a stop in Africa

To see a lion’s mane.


I would like to be a pilot

Flying a plane that weighs a ton.

A bump of wind or strike of lightning

Won’t stop my flying fun.

I would like to be a pilot

Sometimes I have that wish.

But for now I’ll take my boat out far

And maybe catch a fish.
