Happiness is…


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

    Oh, I always recited that poem when I pushed the children on the swing.
    But our swing was not as wonderful as yours..
