“Fair Night”


That was the first time
when in a good wear,
at the night when dad
took me to a lovely fair,

The fact I found
people rich and poor,
forgot all their woes
and started enjoying there,

Rollercoaster rides,
and mysterious shops,
Gazing people in the rides
at the top,

Cute little children
playing with toys,
and eating sweets
of their choice,

But what was I
doing there?
Among such
fun loving people’s near,

So dad told me
to have some fun,
to enjoy some rides
and to taste atleast a bun,

But I refused
told that I couldn’t do,
‘coz that was strange
and something new,

And then dad
put his hand on my shoulder,
and told me
to relax and become colder,

told me to try
some shops and rides,
and if I disliked
then also to leave his side,

So I decided to try
some shops and rides,
And couldn’t believe
that I enjoyed that night.

    smiles…everyone can fit in at the fair..and i am glad he encouraged you just to let loose a bit and relax so you could have some fun…it can be a bit intimadating being so flashy and loud your first time…

    A fair is a scary place, if you’ve never been to one before. All the crowds, the noise, the screams but, such a fun place to be too once you get over that initial fear. Glad you dad encouraged you to try🙂

      Hmmm….I agree and thanks🙂

    really nicely done. I love the back and forth with your dad, such a nice touch, and the mention of the rich and poor, true, fairs really are a melting pot for all to enjoy. Great read. thanks

    First time at the fair could be terrifying for a child. I’m glad your dad encouraged you to have fun. Though i must admit his method (“then also leave his side’) to be a bit harsh.

      Ya mam…..we, at our childhood remain scared but slowly-slowly, we learn everything from our mom and dad…

    Good on dad for pushing you a little; it sounds like a fixed memory now.
