Subject(s): Children; Mothers; Childhood


DOWN the dimpled greensward dancing,
Bursts a flaxen-headed bevy, --
Bud-lipt boys and girls advancing,
Love's irregular little levy.
Rows of liquid eyes in laughter,
How they glimmer, how they quiver!
Sparkling one another after,
Like bright ripples on a river.
Tipsy band of rubious faces,
Flushed with Joy's ethereal spirit
Make your mocks and sly grimaces
At Love's self, and do not fear it.
