A nursery rhyme… in fancy dress

A nursery rhyme… in fancy dress

In the sky a streamer runs
In the sky a streamer’s spun
Arlequin and Colombina are on the run
Brighella and the Blue Fairy share in the fun

The joyful chariot spins
With sounds and colours it fills the streets
Time flies and evening comes,
The storm packs up and goes
With his bin and with his broom

The sweeper takes what the day’s consumed

Ercole Bonjean
