Red Kite

"Oh Alice! 

Slip an Eat me Sweet in the post!

Make me shrink to thimble size

That Wendy would approve..."




I could sneak beneath the wing

Of the Red Kite on the wind

And feel the rush from soaring far above


I could peer through gentle clouds

At my lead weight shrinking woes

And watch the world go ant-like through its day


My worries would be earthbound

And not a jot would matter

The small mindedness of people

Would become mere passing thoughts


Let me hear the Kite's soul whistle

To the earth and crisp blue sky , in a way

That caged birds cannot comprehend


Let me rest inside the daydream

Where the comfort felt in soaring

Is given to those needing it the most
