The Fun of the Fair

Written by: Elisabeth Sheaffer

The fun of the fair, sound and sight,
Swirling circles of brilliant light,
Octopus, dodgems,  Ferris wheel
And then there’s a truly tasty meal,
A hot dog and onion delight.

The wailing ghost train haunts the night,
Goose bumps form as the people squeal
And everyone unites to feel
The fun of the fair.

The merry-go-round in full flight,
Pink and white popcorn warm and light,
These sounds and sights help me to steal
Echoes of youth and then I can feel
The thrill of a magical night,
The fun of the fair.
