When I was young, I loved to jump the rope;
Jumping helped me learn to thump the rope. 

Sometimes when jumping doubles at school,
Someone would just accidentally bump the rope.

Everyone would get upset and blame others,
When the rope stopped or grump throwing the rope.

Because I was large and heavy,
Children would always lump me bad at rope.

I wish somehow, Sunflower now
Could once again trump others at rope.

When I was young, I was always impressed with how great girls were at jumping rope. Still am to this day. Have a good one.

David, Yes, some of the boys not so good at jumping rope but some boys today are really good. I know some boxers use that as a nimbler exercise. Thanks for dropping by. Sara

This brought back pleasant childhood memories, Sara. Oh how I used to love Double Dutch. I can still jump double, but it’s not quite as fun when your body parts jiggle as you move up and down. Lol. I enjoyed this. :-)

Carol, Awesome that it brought back pleasant memories. Amazing how jumping rope was so much fun for so many children through the ages. I wonder if children even know how to jump rope anymore? Sara
