The Love of a Clown

22 Aug

You loved the big top

Entrance was free

and the acts within

all for free

The soaring trapeze

unlimited space

Free to come and go

time stood still

under the big top

A lifetime of years

is a long time

for a circus

to stay in one town

So now the big top

has finally come down

you loved the circus

But never  the clown

      Happy new year to you dear friend
      May it be filled with prosperity love and happiness and much romance
      May all your dreams come true
      Ian aka Emu

      You are the Wendy
      From my wonderland
      Of dreams
      A faraway land
      Of love
      I am Peter Pan
      I write our songs
      Of love
      A duet of romance
      I write from the
      Never ending
      Lands of our dreams
      I take you by the hand
      And hold you
      Close to my heart
      As we fly
      Through times and spaces
      Young lovers
      At heart
      We play and laugh
      And we dream
      Between the skies
      And earths
      We chase each other
      In loves pursuit
      Between the heavens
      And stars
      We love
      Beneath the smiling eyes
      Of the pale blue moon
      I hold you close
      My Wendy
      From the faraway land
      Of dreams
      As we explore
      The memories
      We once shared
      So many times before
      Memories of other places
      Other lives and lands
      When we laughed
      And loved
      Down through the ages
      On different lands
      And shores
      Come fly with me
      Again tonight
      My Wendy
      From the faraway land
      Of love
      Take hold
      Of the writing hand
      Of magic and dreams
      Take hold of the hand
      Of your Peter Pan
      Of love
      And sail with me
      On our Spanish Galleon
      As we sail the waves
      And skies
      Of the heavens
      Sail with me
      My Wendy
      Into our never ending land
      Of love

    The Clowns were always a hoot and very physical…I see them in rodeos and fear for those brave comedians.
    Warm feathery,

    I always find clowns scary, because they can have so many faces. Then again, the line between pretending and “meaning it” is always hard to see/ feel with anybody though … Be well, my friend. Love, cat

      I agree Cat , clowns are always facinating and its interesting that no clown has the same facial makeup as another , they are all copyrighted
      Cheers girl

    Besides, a clown is not always also amusing and enchants many people.
    I love the clown and wish you a wonderful day.

    Warmly ♥ Marianne

      Thank you for your comment my friend , its interesting to note that all clowns facial makeup is copyrighted
      so it cannot be copied by other clowns , I find them quite enjoyable
      Wishing you much love from Australia
      Aussie Ian
