One stream and an old swing

Sometimes all you need for fun
Is a shallow stream and lots of sun
Some kids, a net, a bucket too
And a rope that's the right size for two

Of course some mess will be involved
But that's all part of not being old
It's only water after all
And only then, if you fall

Or if you paddle looking for minnows
Or use the grass edge for some pillows
Or jump around making a splash
Let's face it, mess will be about

But we don't care, not one of us
We don't worry or make a fuss
One stream and an old swing has been
The highlight of almost everything.
