Swinging – Week 31
“How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it te 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 countrywide.
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
Thinking about swinging, my dad was an awesome pusher, but hold on tight. He’d push you off the swing if he could. But his strong hands on your back gave you certainty if you did fall he’d have your back. Ah, the memories.
