Up in the Air and Down

Looking back in my picture files I found this one of Youngest and Only and it Reminded me of a poem I had to memorize as a 2nd grader. Do you have a favorite poem from your childhood?

The Swing

Robert Louis Stevenson

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!
