Flying above the clouds.

 Flying above the clouds.

I have not posted for almost two months, because I took a trip to California,  to enjoy my grandson and soak up some of that good sunshine. One of those days, we went for a walk to his local park, where we enjoyed swinging on the swings together for about half an hour in the pleasant sunshine.  I was reminded of a poem, my mother used to recite to us children  while we swung on our homemade swing made by my father. Homemade swing

        How do you like to go up in a swing ,

Up in the sky 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 country side!

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.  

 Poem by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Have you been on a swing lately?   Good exercising, but start out slowly!
