Picture Plus a Poem: a Perfect Autumn Day

The kids and I went for a walk today and afterward played on our neighbor’s swing set. It was a perfect fall day with clear blue skies.

The day reminded me of this poem:

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,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside–

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!

~Robert Louis Stevenson
