Joyous swing


Fervent prayers answered,
swinging willow thwacks leather-
crowd erupts in joy.

*************************************
Heart flutters, eyes shine,
rusty old swing squeaks with joy-
tiny dreams fly high.


*************************************
Dainty daisies dance,
roses blush, bees hum, heart sighs-
naughty summer breeze
