The Swing

The Swing

Featuring Sway’s

I love swings!  Have I mentioned that before?  I don’t think I have but I have loved swings my whole life.  The summer I turned 10 we moved to an old farmhouse on four acres and when I say old I mean old…from the late 1800’s.  My mother still lives there and this picture could be straight from her yard.  There is a massive oak tree there and the summer we moved there my mom and dad hung an old plank swing on the perfect branch…nothing fancy, just 2 long chains and a board.  It is still there today…43 years later.  I am reminded of one of the poems my mom used to read to me and I will share it with you now.

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, 
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!
By Robert Louis Stevenson
