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
calmly
below

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

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