Stevenson, Robert Louis (1850–1894).  A Child’s Garden of Verses and Underwoods.  1913.
34. The Swing

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,         5
  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—  10
Up in the air I go flying again, 
  Up in the air and down!
