The Swing

How do you like to go up in a swing,
 Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing 
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall, 
Till I can see so wide,
Rivers and trees and cattle and 
all over the countryside -

Till I look down on the garden green, 
Down on the roof so brown -
Up in the air I go flying again, 
Up in the air and down!

-Robert Louis Stevenson

There's still a bit of chill in the air, but the sunshine is just warm enough to spend our afternoons outside sliding down slides, swinging, blowing bubbles and picking dandelions. 
Of which swinging is the absolute favorite.
