April is National Poetry Month and National Kite Month
In honor of this I give you the following poem
Read Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young
selected by Jack Prelutsky and
illustrated by Marc Brown
I often sit and wish that I
Could be a kite up in the sky,
And ride upon the breeze and go
Whichever way I chanced to blow.
