Wordless Wednesday - The Swing

The Swing(like a giant`s sling shot big enough for two) at West Bay, Dorset

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 1850–1894

What a great poem. It makes a change for one to scan so well and match the photo at the same time. Who needs therapy when there is a swing?
