Dancing on the wall

Let us make a fairy ring,
Shadow children, hand in hand,
And our songs quite softly sing,
That we learned in fairyland.

Shadow children, hin and small,
See the day is far behind,
And I kiss you, on the wall-
On the curtains, on the blind.

- Katherine Mansfield 'Evening Song of a Thoughtful Child'
