Go Ride a Kite

By Beth Beutler
1     I love kites. I love to go to the park and fly one. Kites are so pretty!
 
2     Tomorrow is Saturday. Dad and I will finally have time to fly our new kite. It is red, white, and blue. It has stars and stripes like a flag. It took a couple of weeks to build. We had fun doing it. I hope it will fly!
 
3     Dad attached a long tail to the kite. It will look like it has blue streamers. We also have a large spool of twine. We hope the wind will take our kite very high. I hope tomorrow gets here soon! For now, it is time to go to sleep. Mom tucks me into bed and pulls my pink and purple sheets up to my chin.
 
4     (The narrator has a dream.)
 
5     "I've never ridden on a kite before," I said to my friend Jeremy. I was sitting on my red, white, and blue kite with my legs dangling from either side. I was flying through the air high in the sky. I felt so free!
 
6     "I never have, either!" said Jeremy.
 
7     I looked down to see how I was staying on the kite. My feet were in stirrups, as if I was riding a horse. A long string was attached to my right foot. It went way down to the ground. I think it was attached to my dad, but I am not certain.
 
8     I glided along, riding on the wind. The blue streamers flew out behind me like a massive horse's tail. The kite swooped up and down, moving like a horse jumping over invisible fences. Jeremy was nearby on a brown and black kite. He dove down low like a hawk going after prey and then buzzed back up high. We were both laughing and screaming, having a completely awesome time.
 
9     Then it was time to land. We slowly descended, and I could almost see my dad.
