Excerpt: The Stolen Child // WHERE dips the rocky highland // Of Sleuth Wood in the lake, // There lies a leafy island // Where flapping herons wake // The drowsy water rats; // There we've hid our faery vats, // Full of berrys // And of reddest stolen cherries. // Come away, O human child! // To the waters and the wild // With a faery, hand in hand, // For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand. // Where the wave of moonlight glosses // The dim gray sands with light, // Far off by furthest Rosses // We foot it all the night, // Weaving olden dances // Mingling hands and mingling glances // Till the moon has taken flight; // To and fro we leap // And chase the frothy bubbles, // While the world is full of troubles // And anxious in its sleep.
