I Sit On A Front Porch Swing

I Sit On A Front Porch Swing

A Poem by JP142000

I sit on a front porch swing 
A beautiful wood front porch swing
And watch the world go by

I sit on a front porch swing
A beautiful wood front porch swing 
And look up at the sky

I sit on a front porch swing
A beautiful wood front porch swing
With ear buds in my ears 
Just my ITunes and I 
These are the moments I hold so dear

Why are these moments so precious? 
Because they are the fleeting kind 
For tomorrow I could be gone but this porch swing will survive

It will survive to tell my stories 
The stories only its oak knows 
Because here on this wood porch swing 
I feel right at home

This porch swing helps me bend reality 
Forget my worries for a while 
All it does is rock me 
And leaves me with a smile

This swing holds my tears, my sweat, my pride
This swing knows my dreams and it hopes they will survive
This swing likes my taste in music and understands my pain 
This swing helps me escape and never asks to get paid 

I sit on a front porch swing 
A beautiful wood front porch swing 
And I feel like I can fly

While I found the repitition of this line agreeable, almost soothing - "I sit on a front porch swing..." I subsequently found this one grating - "A beautiful wood front porch swing..."
To have the latter stated twice - beginning and end stanzas would be enough I feel.

Overall it's a homely and warm poem though and is as iconic as Apple Pie in the mind of this non-American reader.
