gambol \GAM-buhl\, intransitive verb:
1. To dance and skip about in play; to frolic.
1. A skipping or leaping about in frolic.
Gambol, earlier gambolde or gambalde, comes from Medieval French gambade, "a leaping or skipping," from Late Latin gamba, "hock (of a horse), leg," from Greek kampe, "a joint or bend."
The bad news is that while most of us gambol in the sun, there will be much wringing of hands in environment-hugging circles about global warming and climate change.
