To a Dancing child in the wild by Y.B. Yeats

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?

this is a poem titled " To a dancing child in the wind" beautifully captures the innocence and joys of childhood in just a few lines..hope you enjoy.
