Sunday Afternoon

by James Morehead

strapped in
to a swinging seat
"higher   daddy   higher!"
but not too high
he thinks

high pitched squeal
and flying curls
sharp fast drop to hard earth
                                              father waits

spinning smiling
"faster   daddy   faster!"
but not too fast
he thinks

later - searching
the park now still and empty
a lone swing slowly swaying
the round-a-bout still turning
an empty slide stands waiting
