A Child Eyes
Candied apples sticky and sweet
Ferris wheel and cotton candy treat
Curly blonde hair eyes wide and blue
Carmel candy stuck to her shoe.
Balloons all colors given by clowns
Face painted smiles nary a frown
Pennies tossed a goldfish won
Smell of popcorn, can I have some
Elephants march, poodle’s dance
Heads spin to catch a glance.
House of mirrors makes her laugh.
Granny, look at you so big and fat
Dusk approaches she rubs her eyes.
Grandpa picks her up as she sighs.
Fairy dust sprinkles fell into her eyes
Dancing in her dreams where fairies fly
Closing her eyes, she drifts to sleep
Safe in grandpa’s arms she snuggles deep
She felt comfort in grandpa's kiss sweet
Placed in her bed, handed a teddy to keep
Glittered vapors rise from children’s laughter.
Screams of excitement hit the rafters.
These are the memories that will stay.
Reminding her of this Magical day
