Mask, by Carl Sandburg


Fling your red scarf faster and faster, dancer.It is summer and the sun loves a million green leaves,     masses of green.Your red scarf flashes across them calling and a-calling.The silk and flare of it is a great soprano leading a     chorusCarried along in a rouse of voices reaching for the heart     of the world.Your toes are singing to meet the song of your arms:Let the red scarf go swifter.Summer and the sun command you. - Carl Sandburg
