The Swing
BY ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON

Hello this is Richard, and I’m here with a soaring poem by Robert Louis Stevenson.

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!

And that was the Swing, by Robert Louis Stevenson. A short but sweet poem that made me feel just a little bit giddy.
For now, from me Richard, at Storynory, goodbye
