The Circus is in Town

The Circus      C.J. Dennis
Hey, there!  Hoop-la! the circus is in town!
Have you seen the elephant?  Have you seen the clown?
Have you seen the dappled horse gallop round the ring?
Have you seen the acrobats on the dizzy swing?
Have you seen the tumbling men tumble up and down?
Hoop-la!  Hoop-la! the circus is in town!

Hey, there!  Hoop-la!  Here's the circus troupe!
Here's the educated, dog jumping through the hoop.
See the lady Blondin with the parasol and fan,
The lad upon the ladder and the india-rubber man.
See the joyful juggler and the boy who loops the loop.
Hey!  Hey!  Hey!  Hey!  Here's the circus troupe! 


  1. We went into Armidale for the easter show & markets. A complete waste of time. Most of the stalls were food stalls. We did not go there for food.
    Never again.

  2. Did you go to the circus Mark? We were tied up with cricket finals and other commitments.

  3. Love those colorful tents Mark .... It's years since I've been to a circus.

  4. I remember the excitement of the circus coming to town when i was a kid. They didn't have fancy tents like this though.

  5. Keith I like lots of bric a brac at markets. Hard to find these days!
    Yes Karen went on Saturday. Expensive but worth it.

  6. Looks like a lot of fun. Have a fabulous week.
