Tree Swing

Swing, swing, swing your feet
Then you point your toes
Lean, lean, lean on back
Pull your legs in close

Hold, hold, hold on tight
Tightly to the rope
Grip, grip, grip it right
Never let it go

Spin, spin, spin around
Pull your feet back in
Slow, slow, slow it down
Point your toes again

Smile, smile, smile real wide
Swinging on your swing
Laugh, laugh, laugh inside
Life is but a dream

    Lol.I love to swing! I was just swinging yesterday! I had to show my older brother and his friend how to spin faster! I had my brother spin me and he didn't get out of the way fast enough and I broke his arm.

    LOve it, MItch! This makes me think of my silly grandson. He is such an uncoordinated child. I would keep urging him, "feet BACK, now legs FORWARD" and he just wouldn't get it. And now he's 7 and I STILL don't think he swings. Good grief. haha. LUv, andrea

    In the carefree days of childhood that your poem recalls in such a delightful manner, life seemed to be perfect. Don't you wish we could see the world again through a child's eyes? Very nice writing, Mitch. Love, Carolyn
