Far and wide across the land,
Kids go play in dirt and sand,
Get out of the house,
Turn off that TV,
Go make a tree fort,
Perhaps a tepee.
You were made to run be free,
Skip and hop, giggle with glee.
Play hopscotch with chalk of blue,
Jump rope, climb trees, underdogs too.
Electronics are cool, and of course have a place.
But no mud's on your shoe from a virtual race.
