THE DANCERS, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: I dance and dance! Another faun
Last Line: I will outdance him! Ho, ho, ho!
Alternate Author Name(s): Field, Michael (with Edith Emma Cooper)
Subject(s): Children; Dancing & Dancers; Childhood

I DANCE and dance! Another faun,
A black one, dances on the lawn.
He moves with me, and when I lift
My heels his feet directly shift:
I can't out-dance him though I try;
He dances nimbler than I.
I toss my head, and so does he;
What tricks he dares to play on me!
I touch the ivy in my hair;
Ivy he has and finger there.
The spiteful thing to mock me so!
I will outdance him! Ho, ho, ho!
