Excerpt

A chant to which it is intended a group of children shall dance and improvise pantomime led by their dancing-teacher.

A master deep-eyed
Ere his manhood was ripe,
He sang like a thrush,
He could play any pipe.

So dull in the school
That he scarcely could spell,
He read but a bit,
And he figured not well.

A bare-footed fool,
Shod only with grace;
Long hair streaming down
Round a wind-hardened face;
He smiled like a girl,
Or like clear winter skies,
A virginal light
Making stars of his eyes.
