The Swing

This is one of my mom's favorite poems.
She used to say it to me.

Now she says it to Q-Tip.
And I love watching and listening.

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. If I had heard that poem before, I didn't remember. Love this, and the smile, says it all. ~K

  2. My mom used to say it to me all the time. I loved it! So neat to see her say it to my little girl now. :-)
