I don't know the author only this partial stanza:
Boys flying kites haul in their white winged birds
but you can't do that when you're flying with words
Then it's something like "words spoken in anger, not even God can take back.
It is a very long poem and I don't know the author either.
Thanks for any help on this one.
Careful with Words - Will Carleton
"Boys flying kites haul in their white-winged birds;
You can't do that when you're flying words:
‘Careful with fire,' is good advice we know,
‘Careful with words,' is ten times doubly so.
Thoughts unexpressed may sometimes fall back dead,
But God himself can't kill them when they're said."
