Poem by Robert Louis Stevenson

A Child's Garden of Verses. 33. 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
