In their heyday, traveling circus trains were a mile long
and included living quarters for performers and
animal keepers. In the day of long ago, farm boys
were given free tickets to the circus for pasting
the advertising posters on barns, most likely the birth
of American advertising! It's those posters of long
ago that cling to the corners of my mind.
Somewhere in mind's cobwebbed corners
I see the weathered barn
Proudly wearing the posters
The circus is coming to town!
