Cheshire...

I looked and chose a thick one
Tossed it sideways into the water
Grimacing; sticking out my tongue
One, two… Quickly, it goes under…
 
Then she looks around, a flat one
She sees; smiling like a Cheshire
She tossed it; lots of arm motion
One, two, three… oh so much higher…
 
I lost repeatedly, in mock frustration
She laughed heartily, clearly happy
That’s how we spent the afternoon
'Twas hard to pretend feeling crappy…
 
***
A day at the beach with my daughter
Did I let her win that day?
Maybe, but she was such a happy camper
Truly, I was the winner in every way!
