Summary

The narrator goes on to describe an idyllic scene in the Green Fields in the third paragraph. There is food, laughter, and flowers as the youths prepare for the horse race. A child of nine or ten sits to the side of things and plays a sweet tune on a flute. People pause and smile as they listen to his music. The child never pauses and never notices the people around him as he is so focused on the melody of his own music.

When the flute player finally ends his song in the fourth paragraph, a trumpet sounds to bid the horse riders to prepare for the race. The trumpet excites the horses who prance, rear, and neigh in response. The riders soberly restrain their horses and get in line. This is the opening of the Festival of Summer.
