Poetry for Children

My Kite

My kite is a dragon,
swooping through the skies,
My kite has eyes ablaze,
With sunlight as it flies.

My kite is a bird of prey,
Scanning the Earth for food,
It soars up high and glides,
Then dips when in the mood.

My kite is a butterfly,
Skittering on lacy wings,
Pretty colours fill my mind,
I hear its beauty sing.

My kite is full of happy thoughts,
It flutters through the air,
It gives me joy to imagine,
That I’M flying way up there.
