Me and my cousin swinging
On the swing in the backyard
The swing going back and forth
Jump on the swing and
Close my eyes as the swing starts
To slow down. I get off, my cousin
Gets on. When I was swinging it felt
Like I was going to fall off or hit my head
On the ground. The noise
Outside sounds like thunder.
We get into the house
Just in time. It starts to
Thunder and lightning.
