He went out to play, just for fun.
Adventure imagined, exploits, joyful courage; just with what is present, just for fun.
Raging wild flying steed unreined will surely diminish, diminish, diminish (at least the stallion of joy); by problems yet to concern him.

And to what
will imagined courage,
learned at play …
… be sufficient?
