Summer's sensuality
When the new leaves are green with love
Marks the ritual's beginning
A ritual old as the unmarked time
That passed before us all,
In which we are called to spring, to dance
Butterflies and mindless acrobats

Acrobats in the center ring
Ballerina bears on balls and bicycles
Cavalcades of clowns with calliopes
