Whirligigs

Whirligigs and sunburned faces
Lapped it up, and spilled the traces,
Broke-in shoes, and muddied laces
All combined to run the races.

Ferris wheel is going ‘round.
Tilt-a-Whirl and helicopter.
Children grinning at the sounds of
Cheering, clapping, smiles and laughter.

Horses, cows, and lambs, and chicks,
Piggies, roosters, kitties, rabbits.
Oh, foul cages! Hose the stink!
Then display the winning ribbons.

Budding cooks show off their muffins,
Collectors show their best antique.
Knitters, artists, crafters, gardeners
Culminate their joys this week

Whirligigs and sunburned faces
Lapped it up, and spilled the traces,
Broke-in shoes, and muddied laces
All combined to win those races.
