Welcome, Dear Friends of The Tearoom
and Happy Halloween to you all!
And, welcome, once again, to my post for
the wonderful Halloween Blog Party, hosted
by our Dear Friend Vanessa
of A Fanciful Twist!
This year, won't you please follow me,
as we visit a circus of long ago...
Welcome, one and all,
The Gothic Circus...
It's a cold and blustery evening
and the dry leaves rattle,
chattering as they stampede in crispy packs,
over your feet and down the road,
as we walk to the circus.
The tents glow warmly...
I look forward to getting there and having
a warm drink...
The last twinkly tinkles of music come from
the creaky old carousel...
We get our tickets from this beautiful lady
and she gives us directions to the snack tent.
The scent of caramel corn
hazelnut hot chocolate
lead us there...
Thank you, Miss, for showing us to our seats!
How welcoming all of that plush purple
This is Madame Bellagia, trainer of bats!
As they swoop and flutter their way
through the hoop, their flight in intricate patterns...
Bobo The Juggling Wonder entertains us
by juggling the strangest pieces of fruit
we have ever seen!
Oh! How they do stare at us!
the trainer of The Rare Flying Tyger Saffron,
whispers her polite requests to him
and in return,
he politely complies.
The tiny Princess Peony holds the curtain,
fascinated by it all.
Zizzou and Bizzou,
the zebra twins,
and captivating the audience!
And here is Zizzou once again,
showing us more of his balancing skills!
Mademoiselle Octoberella has a special talent,
training the wild and exotic
They listen to only her direction.
and The Sisters Rougette and Bleuette
(who are triplets, sister of Madame Violettina),
perform mysterious feats of conjuring...
Mademoiselle Coco, trainer of her
famous Circus Insecta.
What most find creepy and crawly,
she finds adorable.
At night, she tucks them all into tiny,
As we walk away from the Circus,
into the cold, blustery night,
we hope it will stay long enough
so we can come back and visit
Wishing one and all
A Most Happy Halloween!
