The circus was in town and we pleaded with father to take us there. Father
agreed, and last Saturday, he brought us to the circus.
The show began with
two girls on a unicycle. A girl was sitting on the shoulders of the girl who was
riding the unicycle. It was very thrilling
and all the time I feared the girls would fall and hurt themselves.
Then a large cage was brought out and the lions came out. They looked very
fierce and growled at the lion tamer. The
lions performed many tricks like jumping though hoops and standing on a small
stool with their hind legs. As a finale, the lion tamer put his head into the
mouth of one of the lions. I was at the edge of my seat.
Next came the acrobats and they thrilled the audience with their
daring stunts and somersaults. Then came the
jugglers who could juggle many balls, rings and even knives.
The part I enjoyed the most were the clowns. With their funny dresses and
antics, they made the whole audience laugh with joy.
The circus came to an end and we made our way back home. It was truly a
memorable day for me.
