Illustration to poem Bicycle.


Jimmy tied his balloon to her bicycle,
then ran ahead, whooping and leaping,
as she rode downhill, wing creaking above,
while we yelled her on from the crest.
Faster and faster she hurtled down,
bouncing and hurdling in the grass,
Jimmy unable to keep up the pace.
And Death sitting, unmoved, nearby.
