The swing 2 111119

When I was a child we’d drive 200 miles
to Grandma’s in the Spring
I’d jump out of the car, run to the back yard.
Grandma had a swing
But the times have changed

When I became a dad I took the rope I had
and tied it to a limb
My first son would know the fun
a swing could be to him
But the times have changed

Now may son is grown with children of his own
But we still have the swing
The yard has lost its thrill. The swing is no big deal
Their phone is now the thing

Now the ropes are frayed from all the years of play
Before I take them down, maybe one more round……
