Small Planes

Small planes
scare some
Big People

the way
Big Boats
a small island

with one harbour
full of boats
able to go
in the flats
after clever fish;

with quick lizzards
and slow bugs;
birdsong to charm
worms from sandy yards;

even the bakery's
only got small donuts.

The right small island
Big Things
carried ashore
on small devices.

The best approach
to a small island:

land light as you can,
leave lighter still.
