The Swing

Robert Louis Stevenson

Girl on a Swing, courtesy of  Grandpa India (
How do you like to go
up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it ever 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.
