Paper Aeroplanes

East Kent, 12 March 2017

Do children still make
paper aeroplanes
like we did,
fling them out of
attic windows
with paws and chins
propped on elbows
and wooden sills
to watch them sail
past sun-rubbed roofs
feathery tree branches
hankering glances
till at last they flutter
to the ground?

Or do they only
look at
their smartphones?
