A Carnival

Stilt legged and masked clowns,
kids, riding in merry go rounds;
twelve german, czech and swedish boys
playing war with soldier toys;
green, wild apple trees
scenting across crowded streets;
People pass by, pushing carts
calling out, "apple tarts",
"pink crystal sugar drops",
"candy canes" and "lollipops";
"roasted beef and chicken wings",
"cinnamon sugared doughnut rings".
upside down umbrellas caught
raining toffee, toys, thrown out
by parade troups, calling loud
"..an' how 'bout some Tonka toys
for you, and you, ma' good ol' boys? "
