I WISH I COULD FLY

I wish I could fly, 
just like eney bird can fly!!!!
I wish I could fly as grasfall as bird,
It would be fantastik, to see all the erth,
The grass rushing bye,
as we zoom abouve the ground,
People saying good luck as I go up, up
I say to myself, what a thing this is.

Written by Matt Smith, April 1997, 9 years old after a flight in a P51 Mustang
