Clowns - Poem by Adeline Foster

~ Clowns


Three rings were in my circus,
Each in a different land,
A different act, a different set,
Each staged a different clown-
A slight resemblance and yet
Each would different be,
And should you meet me on the street
Not one of them is me.

Written in answer when asked how I arrived in Maryland, USA from Canada

    The three rings... Hmm... Maybe... Engagement ring, wedding ring and suffer-ring? Like your little ditty!

    Hmm, this one I really like. Mystical, in such a serene fashion. (Report)Reply
