Each year the circus

Came to town

I loved to see the caravan

Pull up at the large

Empty dusty lot

Usually a passage for a

Goat or sheep heard

Going to be sold at the market

Or on way to slaughter

But when the circus came to town

All changed

The buzz, the animals

The large white towering tent

My best show

Was the white

Andalusian o lippizaner

stallions with on top

the undulating ballerina

the dancing acrobat

around the track

Weaving up and down

As all as part of one
