There is a bird in a poem by T. S. Eliot who says that mankind cannot bear very much reality; but the bird is mistaken. A man can endure the entire weight of the universe for eighty years. It is unreality that he cannot bear.

Ursla Le Guin (1929-2018)

The Lathe of Heaven, 1971

Once children are familiar with the words they can walk around the room mingling freely and waving and singing to each other. For younger children (3-5 year olds) have them walk around the room in a line.

I've also used this song to start large kindergarten classes (40 students plus) and played it while they form a circle.
