Swimming in our backyard pool
Helps us feel refreshed and cool.
Mix a workout with some fun—
Balls and floats for everyone.
Flip your sister off the raft—
All day long we splashed and laughed.
Swam some laps and did handstands,
Dove for sinking colored bands.
When the sun was setting low,
Watched the fountain’s colors glow.
