Children's Number Chanting Poem -- A Ditty

Napowrimo 2014, Day Twenty Two suggests writing a poem for children...a nursery rhyme, or something longer, say in the manner of Shel Silverstein.
Would my creation work as a jump rope rhyme, or as a hopscotch chant? Try it and see!

One two three, look at me!
Four five six, watch my tricks.
Seven eight nine, I'm so fine.

Ten, ten, back again.

Ten nine eight, you're so great.
Seven six five, it's good to be alive.
Four three two, I love you.

One plus one, it's true!
                                 --Shirley Smith Franklin
