Sky Circus

    “Sky Circus,” Friend, Aug. 1973, 33

    Sky Circus

    It’s really fun to watch the way

    The animals go by—

    Not in a circus on the ground,

    But in the bright blue sky!

    Look! There’s a snow-white elephant,

    A bear, and a giraffe,

    A cow that wears a tinkling bell,

    Beside her a sweet calf.

    And there’s a beaver and a mouse,

    A doe-eyed little fawn,

    A bull frog, and a curled-up cat.

    Oh, now the cat is gone!

    They hurry by, they leap and run,

    Sometimes they even fly.

    Then all that’s left for eyes to see

    Are just clouds in the sky.
