Excerpt from A Daughter of Jehu
The little creatures dance sedately, tiptoeing here, pirouetting there. The young mothers clap their hands in time to the quaint, Old-world tune. The pony stamps and whinnies, rather vexed at being left out of the fun after all. The June sun, shining through the linden branches, thinks, perhaps, that he has seen nothing prettier that day, nor for many days.
Dance, little Duke! Dance, fairy Duchess! Sing and clap your hands, sweet, dark lily-lady! It is June, in the world and in your hearts; dance and sing while yet you may!
