E-text prepared by Ben Courtney and Project Gutenberg Distributed

Note: The original book from which this E-text is taken consisted of
4 lines of verse at the bottom of colored illustrations of the
circus procession. The leaves were mounted on boards and joined
together in an accordion-fold format which, fully extended, was
372 cm (146 inches, roughly 12 feet) in length.

Project Gutenberg also has an HTML version of this
file which includes the original beautiful illustrations.
See 10749-h.htm or


Open the gates, and draw the curtain,
Here comes something fine, that's certain;
Louder the band begins to play,
Open the gates, and clear the way!

Enters a Queen with a King beside her;
Every horse is proud of his rider;
Two by two they march to the tune,
And head the procession that will follow soon.

Men in livery, in their places,
Make the gay steeds keep their paces,
Soothing down their wildest fears
At the rising shouts and cheers.

Jocko, in these sports a sharer,
Acts the part of a standard-bearer,
While behind him soldiers gay
Bugle notes of victory play.

Now a Clown in line appearing
With a tandem, swells the cheering;
Standing on his Horse's back
Thus he guides them round the track.

On a Donkey rides another,
Quite as funny as his brother,
Blowing bugle notes so loud,
He astonishes the crowd.
