March: The heat of the Homecoming

My US month-long vacation is over! And of course, it is good to be back and see the kids and the whole family. The heat that I felt when I arrived at the airport yesterday reminded me that I am now in the Philippines and the summer is here. Yes, March ushers the summer time...And when it is summer, I remember my favorite activity - kite flying. There was a poem I read a long time ago in Family Circle Magazine which is about kite flying and the child named Anne. The poem was written by Eleanor Dennis entitled "March Wind".

We made a brand - new kite today
And soon as we were through
We came out here to fly it
And the wind just blew and blew
And now the kite a tiny speck;
We've just used up all the string:
I'd like to go and get some more.
Anne's such a tiny thing
To hold the kite all by herself,
I wouldn't let her try' For fear I might look back and see
Anne sailing through the sky.
