Circus of Love


welcome to the circus of love
step right up and join in
first walk thru the funhouse
thats where it all begins

next you must try a few games
theres something for everyone
the losers must start again
the winners get to move on

welcome to the circus of love
come inside see the acts
just sit back, relax and watch
if you like, check the facts

we have it all, in this circus of love
we have the clowns and jugglers
the animals, tightrope walkers
stunts, freaks, players and smugglers

welcome to the circus of love
if you lose dont get discouraged
come back, try again
keep up the courage

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
