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.
