Peace be with you

|Walt, your poem mirrors what has been written about the sad lives Red Skelton and Emmett Kelley Jr. led. Skelton was divorced a couple of times and devastated by the loss of his nine year old son Richard from leukemia. Emmett Kelley endured similar tragedies in his lifetime also. Certainly among clowns, those two were America's preeminent. A good message regarding the tragic figures that live behind smiling faces. I wish you peace and love my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|I think clowns special..because they have the power to make us "BIGGER" clowns realise that it's ok to hide your feelings when needed most!!
|Reviewed by Ronald Hull
|It may be wrong to think that all clowns are unhappy. I have been amazed by the long marriages and lives of some of our funniest people like George Burns, Buddy Epson, Ernest Borgnine, Groucho Marx, and Bob Hope, to name a few. Most of these people started work on the vaudeville circuit, much like the circus. I know that circus clowns, like all circus people, led a hard life, but that doesn't mean they were unhappy.

|I once talked to a "carney" person who said the only way to succeed in marriage was to have your wife/partner on the road with you. Your poem reminded me of many carnivals and circus's I attended throughout my life and brought a wonderful smile of happy thoughts and memories to my mind. Love this!
