Constanza Dance

Who is this funny dancing clown
Who entertains throughout the year
With painted frown and brush stroked tears?

His dizzy spins go round and round
‘til orange hair and polka dots
Look like a crazy spinning top.

Then plopping down upon the ground
As children laughed until they cried
At funny dizzy crisscrossed eyes.

There, where his frown was upside down.
The happy circus filled with smiles
As other clowns ran in the aisles.

Now laughing loud without a sound
And gaily dancing as he left
Belying inner tears he wept…
 
Who is this funny dancing clown?
His dizzy spins go round and round,
Then plopping down upon the ground
There, where his frown was upside down,
Now laughing loud without a sound.

    This was a really neat poem, but there is just something sort of creepy about clowns, I'm not sure why I don't like them, although your clown seems friendly ;-) Lee

    Craig, your last verse is o so true. Many a clown makes the day of others brighter, but at the end of it, they are sad going home. A sweet write. Congrats! One love. Joy Wells

    This brought back memories of when we as kids were entertained by rolling down a hill! Parents today don't get off so cheaply! {This would have been higher for me ;)]Congradulations on your fine verse winning. Light & Love

    Craig, Congratulations on your placement in Andrea’s “Can you Constanza? Contest.” There were so many really amazing entries we had a very difficult time deciding. We had to go by who followed the form best, and whose poem was most creative. I spent 4 and half hours going over the poems and Andrea, a lot longer. Thank you so much for your wonderful entry Mahalo, Connie
