In geometry, a kite is a quadrilateral with two pairs of adjacent sides that are congruent. This means that a kite has two pairs of sides that are equal in length, but the opposite sides may not be congruent.

In addition, a kite has one pair of opposite angles that are congruent, while the other pair of opposite angles are also congruent but not necessarily equal to the first pair. The diagonals of a kite are perpendicular to each other, and the longer diagonal of a kite bisects the shorter one.

Kites are often used in geometry problems and can be used to find missing angles and sides in a variety of situations.

Kite Poem

Geometry's kite, a quadrilateral delight
With two pairs of sides, of equal length in sight
Adjacent they lie, forming a rhombus or not
Their opposite angles, congruent or not, you've got

A kite's diagonals, intersect at right angles true
Dividing the quadrilateral, in halves that are two
The longer of the two, bisects the shorter one
A line of symmetry, through the kite it does run

Geometry's kite, a flying wonder to behold
On a windy day, it dances and it unfolds
A shape so simple, yet filled with elegance and grace
It glides through the air, a quadrilateral in space

From Pythagoras to Euclid, geometry's greatest minds
A kite has fascinated, and challenged them to find
The secrets it holds, and the properties that it hides
A shape so intriguing, that in geometry it resides

So let us celebrate, the kite in geometry's realm
A quadrilateral so unique, that it overwhelms
With its beauty and its symmetry, a true work of art
Geometry's kite, forever etched in our heart.
