  • Go outside.
    Have some fun.
    Spend and hour or two,
    In this new spring sun.

    Grab a friend,
    Grab a neighbor.
    Go out and play,
    Later and later.

    Feel the wind,
    Hear the crows,
    Run barefoot up and down,
    The garden rows.

    Now jump,
    Jump high off the ground.
    Continue to go up,
    To never retreat back down.

    There are no limits,
    There are no extremes,
    There is no authority,
    None you have not seen.

    So bend down low,
    Then give your legs a good pump.
    You are free, you are free,
    This is your jump!
