Climb a tree

At Real Toad’s 30 poems in 30 days…” today’s prompt, I’d like you to write a poem that incorporates the idea of a child’s game – board game or a physical game (tag, hide and seek, etc.). “ I am still a great one for climbing trees. Come and play with us!

Climb a tree
Come climb a tree with me –
Up up up
To the sky!
Find foot and hand holds,
Scramble up to the top –
bounce up and down on a limb,
find a good place to perch
and listen to the wind and the birds
Settle in against the sun warmed trunk
under a canopy of green
and read.
Come climb a tree with me!
