The Nonsensical Lyrics:
In letters of gold on a snow white kite
I will write I love you,
and send it soaring high above you
for all to read.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Gold is pretty light-coloured/reflective, so that from a distance gold text on a bright white background would be practically impossible to read. Note, though, that there's nothing nonsensical about the song being called Kites (plural). It begins I will fly a yellow paper sun in your sky. How can this yellow paper sun be 'flown' if it is not, in fact, a kite? Similarly with practically everything else in the song. It's all about kites, and not just about one kite.
