Red kite

You used to fly them 
on a string
you gave to the wind

I’d watch you
chopping up clouds

You’d let me
under your arms
to hold on

would grow
fastened to you

When we moved here
mum told be about these
big birds, Red kites

Moon eyes
earth brown wings
triangle tails

There are loads
looking down

I loved that kite
cause I knew
you loved it too

Maybe there was something
for you
at the end of that string

That these Red kites
in the sky
see too
