Subject(s): Swings


Laughter trills down from the blossoming bough,
As the swing sails up in the air.
The blue eyes light with a swift delight,
And the breeze lifts the golden hair.

But slower and shorter, the swinging arc
Comes to rest, and moves no more.
A long sigh slips from the parted lips,
For the recent enchantment is o'er.

Oh, sad little girl, you will learn some day
That our rapturous moments fade.
One instant we rise to the sunlit skies,
Then sink to the ground, little maid.
