A Circus Clown - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

I wish I could walk
Upside down
And see the world
Like a circus clown.
First on one hand,
Then on two
I would spin like a
Ferris wheel high in
the sky so blue.
I would spin like a top,
On the top of my head
I' d tell you more but
I've got to go to bed...
