What is to a child dancing in the wind about?
To a Child Dancing in the Wind’ is dedicated to my ex-wife, Victoria Maragopoulou. It was commissioned by the Little Missenden Festival and first performed on 16th October 1983 in Little Missenden Parish Church by Alison Gough (soprano) and the Nimrod Trio.
What is the tone of the poem to a child dancing upon the shore?
The speaker is feeling regret and jealousy because the young child is free and is able to run around on the shore with the wing blowing in their hair. Also it’s because the young child has no wories about death, love, and triumph.
