Yo! A Yo-Yo!

Today we Nationally honor,
The toy that’s named “Yo-Yo”.
An object kids love,
To spin, wind and throw.
A little axle and two disks,
Wrapped about with twine.
Who would think it would become,
Such a popular design!
Loved the world over,
For the challenge it presents,
And every year there are held,
Many contests and events.
Players  come to compete,
They spin, loop, and throw,
Performing tricks and freestyle,
To bring control of the Yo-Yo.
What a delight it is to watch!
It brings me such great joy,
To see the amazing feats accomplished,
With this simple toy!
