Robert Louis Stevenson - "The Swing"

As a young girl, when I had either the measels or mumps, I received a book, A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson.  I still have it, because I loved it so much.  My edition had a picture of a girl lifted high up in the clouds, on her swing.  I still have much of the poem memorized, and that's what played in my mind when Sam and Ben and I were at the playground and spent soooo much time on the swings, talking and talking and talking.

Little Ben -- "gwamma push, gwamma push, gwamma push!"

And Sam -- "Look gramma, I can go SO high, at least 20 feet high, I think!"
Memories of time well-spent.
Getting both boys in the shot was a feat with a cellphone camera which has a huge delay!
