Moonlight Fair



Bright, coloured lights, twinkling in the moonlight.

Loud, energetic music, blarred out into the night.

Smells of fast food pervades; intensifying my hungry plight.

I make a bee-line to the hot dog seller, and appease my appetite.

Taking in the atmosphere, of the fair's thrills and spills.

Observing young and old alike enjoying life: fullfills.

Watching the crowds of people as they mill;

Around, some choosing to take a ride that mounted a hill.

After an hour of touring the fair.

I found to my delight, I had won a teddy bear.

Also a goldfish; which survived in my care.

And a free ticket for a ride on the helter skelter there.

By moonlight, I saw youngsters kiss.

And old couples, hand in hand, all a bliss.

Some young children yawning; at the sleep they miss.

Above all my enjoyment, that nothing was amiss.

Summertime at the Moonlit Fair; a fruitful evening while winning prizes everywhere.
