Skipping Stones

                           by Ralph Fletcher

Dad skips breakfast
Erin skips rope
I skip stones

George skipped third grade
Trey skipped out of school
I skip stones

Flat stones
     sharp stones
           skinny as potato chips

            ing                     wrin
kick                  up                     kles

          the                     smooth
on                  glass                           lake
