Two girls are seated on the swing; two girls stand behind them holding the rope handles of the swing. To the left of the swing are three girls standing and holding onto the wooden support beam of the structure; they all look toward the girls on the swing. To the right are two girls sitting on the ground, unfocused on the swing. All of the girls have their hair put into two low pigtails with ribbon. Leafy trees cover the background.
