The Enchanted Paper

 

Fifteen more minutes until the bell,

What shall we do after show and tell?

 

In a folder, lies an old worksheet,

Maybe we can fold and pleat

 

To make the paper into something more:

An agile airplane that will soar.

 

Like the birds that fly above

Like an eagle or a dove

 

To take us off the ground in flight

A nine year old becomes a Brother, Wright.

 

-Z.Y. Doyle

 

 

This poem was inspired by:

Swallow Paper Airplane

Swallow

Favorite plane that really looks like a bird.

Nakamura Lock

Made this after reading about it in Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus by Tom Angleberger.

Instructions HERE.

Take special note of Step 3. When folding wings, the edge of wing must be even with bottom of the plane.

 

A Word on Paper Plane Technique

Successful flight depends on a gentle release!

Throw it like you are launching a baby bird into flight. Throw firmly, but tenderly.
