..the pleasantest thing ever a child can do!

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,
River 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

  1. Swinging was (and probably still is) my favorite feeling in the world. (Spinning is a close second.) But I never wanted to jump – I liked the feeling of flying too much.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
