Underneath the vast blue sky.
Laughing loud, his spirits free,
a sight to see.
Back and forth, he soars and flies,
Reaching up to touch the skies.
In his world, there's just delight,
As he swings with all his might.
Wind whispers through his tousled fur,
As he dreams of lands that blur,
Imagination takes him far,
On his swing, like a shooting star.
