Leap Year

The leap year is here and I can hear

The sound of leapers starting to cheer

Kangaroos, Crickets, the Big Cats too

They're looking forward to leaping the whole year through


Because for them the meaning of a leap year

Is a thing which is definite, exciting and clear

No laws, no guidelines, no warnings, no rules

They can leap without fear and not feel like they're fools


They'll leap across the land

They'll pounce on their food

They'll spring around

Because it feels good


They'll launch themselves

They'll hop up high

They'll jump for joy

And touch the sky


They'll leap across chasms

They'll leap across cracks

They leap across ditches

And each others backs


But for humans it just means an extra day

One more in which to work and play

Though if you want to join the leapers don't delay

Just bend your knees and leap away!
