Dear Paper Kite, flapping in the sky,
With wings unfurling in the wind,
Who swoops and dives with endless glee,
In my mind’s eye,
I am with you, free.
The wind, it would deftly catch my soul,
And land me upon a downy cloud,
In a sky of the brightest, azure blue,
how I would love,
To be there with you.
Oh carefree Kite,
You are a scene of the brightest colors,
Like a phoenix tail that outshines all others,
Will you lift me on your back?
When the days down here are gloomy and black?
Dear Kite, that flies up so high,
I wish I were up there with you,
If a summer breeze were to carry by,
A song of harmony and peace,
All my heart’s troubles would someday cease.
