There once was a little boy who attended this school by the side of the road. One day he decided to take his own children for a visit.
It looked just as he had remembered,
even the desks had remained the same.
And of course the first thing he did
was show his boys the outhouse!
And then they took turns priming the pump
and getting a fresh drink!
The Giving Tree
"How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside--
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown--
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!"
Robert Louis Stevenson
