Poetry PAPER EAGLES and A WISH COMPREHENSION

PAPER EAGLES

Kites were first made by a carpenter who lived in China almost three thousand years ago. His name was Gong Shuban. It is said that he made a wooden kite strong enough to carry a person in the air. This kite was used to find out where the enemy might be during a war. The first kite was called a "wooden eagle." Today, the Chinese word for kite means "paper eagle."

A WISH

Saturday I flew my kite
on a hilltop high.
It leaped up like a dancer
and sailed across the sky.

When it dips and bobs along,
flying looks so easy!
I wish that I could soar like that
when the day is breezy.
