In The Clown's Dressing-Room - Poem by Michael Shepherd

out there
I showed you sadness, happiness,
tears, and joy,
now sit here
while I take my make-up off
and let us speak
of life and death, of
death and life

    Vesta La Guibba! Ah Michael on with the motley (crowd) . Nothing will allow us to give up. Brilliant sentiment I just couldnt hear Tauber singing this, but it does cry out for music. (Report) Reply

    Michael, I think readers can take or leave many directions from this. If they are unable to, perhaps.. Exit Stage Left. I see a performer, willing to entertain twice on a public and a private level, both of which command an encore.
