Dancing in the Wind

Dancing in the Wind

DANCE there upon the shore; 
What need have you to care 
For wind or water’s roar? 
And tumble out your hair 
That the salt drops have wet;
Being young you have not known 
The fool’s triumph, nor yet 
Love lost as soon as won, 
Nor the best labourer dead 
And all the sheaves to bind.
What need have you to dread
The monstrous crying of wind?

from “To a Child Dancing in the Wind” by W.B. Yeats

  1. How lovely to have parents who can link child’s play to poetry! Love, Diana
