I'm a swing ..

By: Rakesh Chandra

I'm a swing ..

I'm a swing ,
Though looking forlorn, I'm not !
Young boys and girls and womenfolk,
Enjoy the ride by sitting in my lap,
Defying the sultry heat of summers;

I feel happy when colourful birds,
And frolicking monkeys sit on the chains and 
The seat to make merry beyond the words;

I feel ecstatic when the gentle air,
Enthrals me by her mellifluous crooning,
Enveloping me in her tight embrace;

Piercing sunrays,fallen leaves and tiny insects,
Are my guests of honour,my companion best;
I'm a swing ,I'm never alone !!
