Mask

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 
    chorus
Carried 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
