The Swing
by Robert Louis Stevenson


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!
