Frolic

Language: English

The children were shouting together
And racing along the sands,
A glimmer of dancing shadows,
A dovelike flutter of hands.
 
The stars were shouting in heaven,
The sun was chasing the moon:
The game was the same as the children's,
They danced to the self-same tune.
 
The whole of the world was merry,
One joy from the vale to the height,
Where the blue woods of twilight encircled
The lovely lawns of the light.
