The Kite
I found it this noon:
a stranger to all who had missed
its sun-drenched sailing, then surrender,
a death marker dangling in the cold.

One sighting gave me back the toy:
the shape and the glory and the laughing
of the pure hour
before its breaking.

The Summer Gazebo Readings are held each Monday evening at 7pm in June, July & August. Each evening 4-5 authors and poets share their work from our Gazebo on Schoolhouse Green in Oceanside, NY. SGR is produced by the Kiwanis Club of Oceanside. Funds raised through sponsorships help send underprivileged kids to Kamp Kiwanis each summer. This summer marks our 7th season!
