Waldo the Dodo
Waldo the Dodo was meant to fly.
His wings are small, but his determination high.
If a breeze is blowing,
quickly out he’s going.
To hold the kite tight
as his favorite string takes flight.
Nothing brings such a big smile
as flying his string for a long while. It is currently on display at The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen. Please contact them for purchasing info at 804-261-ARTS (2787) or
