black and white picture of a swing, poem by Rahul

An old man on a swing
Swinging back and forth.

Clenching his hands tight
On the rusty side chains.

Legs stretched and bend
To the rhythm of swing.

His cotton white beard as-
An aimless lite drift cloud,

Shining in the morning sun
Showing the sign of age.

Joy fills the fogy face like-
That in an innocent child’s.

The swing of life continues
Swinging back and forth.

Flawless as day and night
Swinging back and forth.

For a beautiful lives end
Swinging back and forth.

Poem by Rahul


  1. nice thought, nicely expressed, you should attempt poetry more often!

  2. No matter what your age, once you get on those swings you become young at heart again, flooded with thoughts of the past. A lovely poem indeed.

  3. nice one
    swing and life
    have so much to share

  4. Nice thought.. Life continues swinging back and forth , beautiful life ends, swining back and forth. Deep Simple.. Bang on!

    small feedback: some minor english corrections are required.. nevertheless Great thought!
