8-2-16 ~ Let's Go Fly a Kite

Let's Go Fly a Kite

With tuppence for paper and strings
You can have your own set of wings
With your feet on the ground
You're a bird in a flight
With your fist holding right
To the string of your kite

Oh, oh, oh! Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear

When you send it flyin' up there
All at once you're lighter than air
You can dance on the breeze
Over 'ouses and trees
With your fist holdin' tight
To the string of your kite.

Oh, oh, oh! Let's fo fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through ther atmosphere
Up where the air is clear

Let's go fly a kite!
As always, whenever there are two little girls together in my paintings, 
they are my BFF of 50+ years, Weezie, and me as if we were children together.
For those who are unaware of our relationship, she now lives in an extended care facility  in North Carolina after suffering several strokes, and living with heart problems and RA. Is is heartbreaking to see her unable to walk and her hands crippled from the RA. I posted this picture from my last visit with her on my other blog, but I will post it here, now.
