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!

by Robert Louis Stevenson
