A Chapter by Rose

Sometimes it cheers me up to cheer someone else up


Why are you upset, clown?


I think you’re funny

Let me put an end

To all your worries


At every minute

And every second

Of my life

I smile and laugh at you

It makes me love you

With all my heart,

I'm so happy

And proud that I have met you,


Your jokes are so funny

Listening to them

Makes me laugh and choke


I admire your colourful costume,

Your make-up is so stunning,


You make me feel,

I should go to a party

So you can hold my hand,

And take me to the dance floor


You don't need to command and demand,

I will go to the wild party


You have welcomed

Laughter into my life

I thank you so much for it


You’re unforgettable,

I will love you,

And treat you always,

This instantly drew me because of the title and because I feel like a clown for taking myself seriously. Your clown reminds me how the trick is to give something to another not to set out to win. The giving is the most important part. If we learn that, we might if we are very, very lucky, also win. But is winning so important? 'You make me feel' is my fave line. To set out with that as the goal seems the best way for any artist to be. Bravo, clown!

This was beautiful. It captures humor and good tidings in a soft and smooth word form. I can see the laughter invoked and the positive air that comes from cheering up one who's is of the upsidedown frown.

Very Creative and heartfelt ink!

an outstanding poem

I enjoyed the mix of child-like adoration combined with the adult definition of love and how well it played into this read. It led me down a mental trail of fascination and wonder about just who the clown is and what role they play, or whether they are just a clown and the world through a child's eyes.

Clown is a person who makes us laugh, but sometimes we forget that he too has got feelings and tease them, this poem shows how kind you are and respect their inner feelings... good job!
