Transparent tiny bubbles
Those lucent little pearls
Trickle and tickle the nose
Of giggling little girls

Soap bubbles, sparkling water
Sarsaparilla, root beer
Dispense tingling sensations
Any time of the year

A twist of the wrist
Releases a soda’s fizz
Hissing and spitting
All to the tune of “Gee whiz!”

Lovely bubbly champagne
The fizz everybody knows
Launches a warm feeling
All the way down to the toes

Unique, lively, bubbling
Essence of a sparkling escape
Incites genial conversation
Leaving no room for debate

The feel of fizzy fizz
Sometimes incessant
Describes life at its best—
