A Swing - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Swinging to and fro
Sweeping to the heavens
Is a piece of flat wood
Fastened to a sturdy branch by two towering ropes
Where a child sits and let’s go
To the brink of ecstasy
Where in the simple verve of a smile
Rests the inflorescence of innocence
In fullest bloom
