(22 January 1788 – 19 April 1824 / London, England)

The Carnival Child

It sings and dances the dance one can’t stop
It moves the steps across the witchy ground
Burns the witches down to dust
The carnival child
The child of spring can clap and hop
Can enjoy the rhythm the beauty of the sound
Builds the world back into trust

truely this one is mysterious. the poet at one stage seem sarcastic on other gloomy. rhyme is good.
The feeling of the tragedy of passionate love is beautifully and movingly expressed in this poem by the great romantic Poet Byron!
..............very well written ★
