CHILDREN’S POEMS: “The swing” by Robert Louis Stevenson

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, 18501894

(Thank you Michele for recommending this poem!)

    I always loved swinging! Johnny and I would swing for hours in our back yard! I loved to swing with the grandkids when they were little!
