A mischievous wind blows everyone’s belongings up into the air. One by one a crowd gathers to chase the wind. In the end the wind mixes everything up and drops it down before heading out to sea.

The poem is a little sticky in places, but the simple story still holds.  Children will find it funny when the articles are dumped on the people in a big muddle. (And it’s reassuring to see that everyone gets their things back and the balloon survives intact.)
