Paper Bird....Flying Bird Sonnet

Far away had I flown towards the sky
Lost in my dream with birds I could fly
Soaring with winds that carried me high
I was very young then but never did cry
Tho' my wings were made out of paper
An origami bird just made for a caper
It never had any other intentions to be
Than to carry me high so wild and free
No noisy carriageway traffic to hamper
Only the mists shall dampen the paper
Maybe it shant be a good dream to try
Looking ahead with a perspective eye
For reasons are clear to find out why
Paper birds shall all but perish and die.
