The Happy Clown

The Happy Clown prose poem

The Happy Clown prose poemPhoto by audreywatters


When lights go out within your life,
and all your world grows dark;
strike out with steel on solid rock
until you see the sparks.
Then burn the candles in your mind,
and bring in fresh new light,
while wiping sadness in your eyes,
forever from your sight.
Then open all the windows wide
and sing a happy song,
and treat yourself, and friends as well,
to gifts for which you long.
Then paste a joyful smile upon your face,
and never wear a frown;
make Life a Circus every day,
and You, the Happy Clown.
