There it goes back and forth,
welcoming all who come on the porch.

Young and old, the shy and bold,
come sit awhile in the hot or cold.

Close your eyes, and rest your toes,
back and forth with nowhere to go.

Squirrels that scurry, birds that sing,
from this location you see everything.

Out from the woods, who knows what surprise,
maybe a deer, or old tight eyes.

Winter or summer, whatever the season,
the swing on the porch gives you the reason.
