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.
This poem was inspired by:
Swallow Paper Airplane
Favorite plane that really looks like a bird.
Made this after reading about it in Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus by Tom Angleberger.
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.
