Poetry Month, Day 5

At the Playground

Away down deep and away up high,    
a swing drops you into the sky.
Back, it draws you away down deep, 
forth, it flings you in a sweep
all the way to the stars and back
---Gooby, Jill; Goodby Jack:
shuddering climb wild and steep,
away up high, away down deep.
                         - William Stafford                             

Love the imagery of this poem...I can almost feel the breeze blowing through my hair as I reach my toes for the sky!  

I stumbled upon this great blog about poetry for children:  http://poetryforchildren.blogspot.com/
