Summer Explorer

I'd like to be a gypsy

With gold rings in my ears,

Along the road to sit and sing,

And not to do another thing

For years and years;

A road to dream upon by day,

A fire for dreams at night,

Free to wander far away,

Free to shout and free to play,

Quite impolite.

I'd pitch my tent beside a wall,

All apple trees within,

And if the apples didn't fall,

I wouldn't hesitate at all.

I'd climb--and sin!

But if the weather wasn't fine,

If all the world were rain,

If there weren't anywhere to dine

And goose-flesh quivered up my spine--

I might come home again!
