Hopscotch

Numbered squares aligned just so,
Digits boxed one to ten.
Grab the rock and let it go,
Hop forward once again.
Foot to number pick up stone,
and then turn yourself around.
Within four corners stand alone,
just one foot on the ground.
You’d aim for four,
but land on three.
Then go once more,
since play was free.
All you needed was a stone to throw,
on a driveway or sidewalk.
A few simple rules that kids all know,
And a little piece of chalk.
I’d like to go back and play again.
Life was much simpler I know.
We had fewer problems then,
but time made us learn and grow.
