Today’s poem comes from the fabulous Poetry Friday Anthology for Science, edited by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong.
This latest offering in their Poetry Friday Anthology series is chock-full of poems exploring everything from physics to scientific methods to nature to machines to scientists. There’s a teacher’s edition, and then grade by grade student editions–with line art illustrations and bonus poems.
Go Fly a Kite
Above the kite, the pressure’s low.
The air’s a streaming, breezy flow.
Below the kite, the pressure’s higher.
Up! Up! Up! This one’s a fly-er!
Lift versus drag.

I highly recommend ALL the Poetry Friday Anthology books, and of course it’s fun to see lots of regular Poetry Friday participants in there:>)
Here I am reading “Go Fly a Kite!”
