Cirque Du Soliel

Some jump the highest jumps;
Others tumble and roll.
Some swing on the trapeze;
Their grace stirs my soul.

Can humans really do that?
I think as I clap and gasp.
I’m sure I’d be terrified
To swing in someone’s grasp

They remind me of birds
Or otters at play.
I’m always enthralled
At Cirque Du Soliel!
