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!
                    author: Robert Louis Stevenson

I remember memorizing this poem back in grade
school and couldn't get it out of my head,
so I looked it up and thought I'd print it
for you to read and some of you will remember.
