Why I Play Games with My Kids
Our growing up years, we played lots of games:
Croquet, badminton, ball and hide and seek.
All kinds of games in yards, or woods or creek.
Indoors, we played board games with many names.
Of fun but useless skills, we made some claims.
But Mom and Dad worked hard throughout the week.
So playing games to them?—like speaking Greek.
One visit, Mom played Scrabble there with me.
Becoming such a treasured memory.
