Little girl, little girl,
Growing up takes a short while
That feels like a long while for
A little girl, little girl —
Enjoy your Circus Days of
Kaleidoscope legs,
Carefree laughs and
Careless motion,
Trapeze swinging and
Trampoline tumbling,
Disco dancing and
Juice box juggling
And grandpa taming.

The Big Top leaves town
Before you know it
And you will be
A big girl, a big girl —
Growing up,
Leaving home,
Grandpa left
Where’s my
Little girl, little girl?

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
