One We Knew

Publication Date: April 27, 2016

Chapter: The Twentieth Century

"She spoke of the wild "poussetting" and "allemanding"
On carpet, on oak, and on sod;
And the two long rows of ladies and gentlemen standing,
And the figures the couples trod.
She showed us the spot where the maypole was yearly planted,
And where the bandsmen stood
While breeched and kerchiefed partners whirled, and panted
To choose each other for good."

Hell, it sounds like Red Rover to me.

Author: Thomas Hardy • Year: 1903 • Info: Hardy Society
