The Kite

No. 5 in the Dragon Series

The Kite

Two sisters
Found a bright
Blue scale in sand
At the beach
Shimmering in the
Sun it was like
Finding a bit
Of the sky
Fallen to earth
“It’s a dragon scale!” said the older sister

They tied it up
With ribbons and strings
The younger sister ran back
With it and flung it in
The air
Where it was
Swept aloft like
A blue bird
Higher and higher
It glided and dipped
As high as the
String was long

Dragon scales are made
To fly to stay
Aloft to soar
And the girls
Watched with delight
Imagining the
Bright blue dragon
Who had lost
The scale
Imagining him
Soar above the clouds
