“My Circus,” Friend, Nov. 1989, 32

My Circus

I turn my wagon wrong side up

And spin the wheels by hand

And advertise with whispered song:

“Come see my popcorn stand.”

Gathered acorns are my kernels;

The squirrels buy my wares.

Then we sit down to watch the show:

The wild, white, dancing hares.
