Paper boats by Joe Lyon
Paper boats in the stream
Moving quickly chasing dreams
Closely watched by two young boys
In a race with paper toys
Shouts of joy, boats tossed around
Mine’s winning oh! What’s that it’s found?
Can’t you see it’s got caught up?
Yours is winning now through my bad luck
The finish line is just ahead
A bird swooped down from overhead
It took the boat with one cruel snatch
Victory for the boy was dashed
So much fun they had and more
Both boys decide it was a draw
With new paper boats a chance to play
after all the fun they’ve had today
