Rock Skipper

Would you believe me
If I said rocks can fly?
And Walk on water?
It is no lie.

It is all in the wrist
With help from the eye.
Set just the right angle
And let the rock fly!

Across the water
It will skip and slide
And with help from you
Make it to the other side.

So have faith my friend-
And just give it a try.
Pick your rocks carefully,
You'll find one that can fly!
