Subject(s): Children; Swings; Childhood


I love to swing so high, so high,
That all the world is turned around;
My feet are standing on the sky,
And far above me is the ground.

I love to swing so high, and see
The leafy boughs go rushing by,
And view the world beyond the tree,
With nothing near me but the sky.

Up, up I go,—and hardly stir
For one long happy second; then
With a delicious rush and whirr
The world turns right side up again.
