It's been a while since I have been on the Café and just wanted to share a magic related poem I wrote and published while I was away:

The Magician

Gather close, gather ‘round
I will amaze, I will astound
Give me your gaze, spare me a minute
Give me your time, I’ll put magic in it
A deck of cards, plain as can be
This may seem hard, but easy for me
Watch them dance and fly through the air
As I hope for a grin and laughter to share
In the middle of the street, I surprise and enthrall
Every person I meet will get a smile out of it all
The moment of truth arrives, my hat is passed from hand to hand
Seeking tips to survive, but will it all go as planned
Have I done well or failed miserably
Only the hat will tell when it makes its way back to me
I watch with held breath, wishing, hoping, and dreaming
That each person is compelled to celebrate my tricks and scheming
Then I see that shimmering first coin, a sign that I’ve brightened someone’s day
A warmth to blossom and grow, their tips show what they don't say
They appreciate me more than I know, it’s the joy that’s passed from hand to hand
In the form of my tall black hat, a sign they thought my show was grand
But my real payment is each and every smile, which I work hard to inspire
The appreciation of creativity and style, that is the only tip I require
To know that my work has been done, that I've served my fellow man
With a little trickery and a little fun, and that I have earned a few new fans

Very good! I like very much!
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

Feel free to butcher it for your use. I have a busker friend who recites part as he passes the hat. I keep telling him it probably diminishes his tips. Smile

I won't alter it. I'll keep it exactly as you wrote it. I posted it on my FB page, but I said a friend wrote it, because I don't know your actual name. That's how much I liked it!
