The Swing Stanza Wise Summary

Hi Everyone!! This article will share The Swing Stanza Wise Summary.

This poem is written by Robert Louis Stevenson. In one of my previous posts, I have shared Betty at the Party Summary & Questions & Answers so, you can check that post as well.

The Swing Stanza Wise Summary

Stanza 1

In the first stanza, the poet begins by asking a question (How do you……)? This question, and the lines that follow, make it clear that the speaker is like a small child who asks a question about swinging up in the air. The poet is interested to know what is the pleasant thing a child could do. There is nothing else that brings pleasure than the freedom of flying on a swing.

Stanza 2

Here, the speaker is imagining the best moments they have had on the swing and the joy they rose so high that they could see “over the wall.” When the child swings this high then they are able to see so wide.

Stanza 3

In the last stanza, the speaker highlights on how the child has risen up to see over the wall, and then as the swing starts to fall they look down and see the green garden. The swing is in the garden and it is the garden wall the child is looking over. On the way back the child also sees the roof which is brown in colour. The speaker tries to explain the fun and pleasure a child is having on the swing.

The Swing Summary

The poem begins with the speaker asking the listeners how much they like to swing up high in the air. This is a rhetorical (inquiring) question, as seen by the speaker’s quick response. They love it more than anything and think it is the best thing a child could spend their time doing.

So, this was The Swing Stanza Wise Summary.
