Get It Flying

Try try with all our might
This time may we get it right
Another day does come
Still we are all thumbs
Is getting this done right
Really going to be our blight
Another chance is all we ask
Leave other tries in the past
Stop wait are we going to fast
Another let down have we cast
Oh my what a beautiful sight
Finally we learn to fly a kite

Really going to be a fight... sounds better to me... lol I remember fighting to get the kite in the air... Sometimes it was difficult. Well a very nice poem there Carol. I have been busy lately. I have some positive news though. 2 of my poems have been published in poetry books. lol

Thanks for commenting on my poems. Thought I should return the favor. Nice litle verse veering towards the humor that I like. Never knew what the ending was going to be but it all fitted in well.

This is great. I took my kids out to fly kites a month ago and every one question the wind and I told them I can get them up and I did. My children had a blast till the tree got jealous and stole one of the kites.
