Hot Air Balloon Chasing

I was born flying out of the sky in a basket with balloons

When I was one, I knew how to fish, climb trees, and build a fire

When I was two, I could speak sign language, Spanish, English, and Chinese

If I got mad, I would make a twister

If I got happy, I would make rainbows in the sky

When I turned five, I discovered the world didn’t have an end

I am thrilling, amazing, like a leaf in the sky
