INDIAN GAMES AND DANCES
Wild-roses frolic around the Caller, capering about in wild freedom but keeping their steps in exact time with their song. Finally they pause in groups at the left.
After a moment, the Caller moves toward the rear of the open space and while there once again sings:
Song No. I
CALL TO THE FLOWERS
[See page 42]
At the close of the song the dancers who are to repre­sent the Daisies give a trilling shout and appear from the rear of the open space, skipping; their leader holds the end of a long green rope, which is caught hold of by each dancer who follows, all singing:
Song No. 4
SONG OF THE DAISIES
Up from meadows free, Coming full of glee, Troop the Daisies white, Dancing in the light, All skipping blithe and gay. Now we make a chain, Singing as we twine Then back into line — Merry at play!
