How do you like to go up in a swing

Whew! It is pretty hot around the cul-de-sac lately. But somehow just looking at this 4-picture blog post made me happier and cooler at the same time. [I confess to viewing it several times just to see that last photo!]

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!

The Swing - by Robert Louis Stevenson
