Today’s picture is inspired by the tree swing we had when I was a child. I loved swinging. I really loved that swing that my Granddaddy and Daddy made for me.
One of my favorite poems as a child was The Swing by Robert Lewis Stevenson from a A Child’s Garden of Verses .
How do you like to go up in a swing,Up in the air so blue?Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thingEver a child can do!Up in the air and over the wall,Till I can see so wide,Rivers and trees and cattle and allOver 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!
