Excuse me can you help me?
Cause it seems that I am lost.
Iíll pay you for directions,
doesnít matter what the cost.

Iím looking for a big tent,
a trapeze, a man in red.
Think his name was Balladeer
least I thought thatís what he said.

He told me I could join them
play the part of circus clown.
I was late and missed the train
so Iím trying to track them down.

I have a pair of big shoes
and a funny rubber nose.
I run and squirt with water
from a big red plastic rose.

I know Iíll make a good clown
if he gives me one more chance.
But I canít seem to find them
itís an awful circumstance.

I have my curly red wig
and the white paint for my face.
And my rainbow suspenders
that keep my plaid pants in place.

But it seems Iíve missed my chance
to make all the children smile.
By using all my best tricks
and my funny circus style.

If you see the man in red
the one named Balladeer.
Tell him, better to be late
then not show at all, I hear.



 With perseverance even the snail reached the Ark.

Lucie I just love it when you clown around!  


Ahem...In my crystal ball I see Balladeer dressed as a white rabbit...carrying a big watch..."I'm late, I'm late for a very important date"!  hehehe

This is great Lucie! I hope you find the circus!  After all, what would a circus be without a clown!

You'll find 'em somewhere, Lucie. Now if what Bigroach said to Nan is true, it might be kinda tough, but hopefully they won't have left you TOO far behind!  

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Hey, Lucie!!!! The circus wouldn't leave without ya but you've been gone so long you have to hit the button to go back 10 days or so to find it. So stop clowning around and get over there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
