The swing
How do you like to go in a swing?
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it to be 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 country side …….
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!
