The Swing(s)

Posted by Picasa
The Swing
Robert Louis Stevenson - 1850-1894

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,
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!

I love the little merry-go-round at the bottom of the shot! Never seen anything like it...
Wonderful capture.
