disport

I guess I was focusing on the ‘frolic’ part and still back to Alice in Wonderland theme!
disport \dis-PORT\ , verb;

1. To amuse oneself in light or lively manner; to frolic.

transitive verb:
1. To divert or amuse.
2. To display.

Origin:
Disport derives from Old French desporter, “to divert,” from des-, “apart” (from Latin dis-) + porter, “to carry” (from Latin portare) — hence to disport is at root “to carry apart, or away” (from business or seriousness).
