Did you have plans?

Did you have plans
for your day after work?
Were you planning to go
to the bar for a drink with your friends?
Were you planning on playing
with your kids
before tucking them in for the night?
Were you planning on
a candle-lit dinner with
the woman you love?
Were you planning
on sitting quietly with a good book
or tackling a reno project
or maybe going bowling?
Did it even cross your mind
that all of your plans
might end today
with the accident
that took your life?

Synonymous with Swing

How do you like to go up in a fluctuation,
   Up in the breath so blue?
Oh, I do think it the agreeablest thing
   Ever a adolescent can do!
Up in the air and over the bar,
   Till I can see so ample,
Rivers and forests and cattle and all
   Over the environment
Till I look down on the back yard green,
   Down on the ceiling so brown—
Up in the air I go floating again,
   Ascend in the air and down!

a second “cover” for my prompt at dVerse.  This time, I took The Swing by Robert Louis Stevenson, and merely substituted synonyms in for a few key words (changes in italics)
