Dance InformationThe deviser of this dance, Alan MacPherson, said the title came to him after he just happened to have seen the Summer Wooing - Poem by Robert Nicoll.
The green broom was bloomin'-
The daisy was seen
Peerin' up to the sky
Frae the flower-spangled green-
Summer Wooing - Daphnis And Chloë
