We are going, the horse gallops

We are going to the circus
On a white horse with big Boris
In a magic place we will be
We’ll have great fun we all agree
And at the end for an encore we are baying
No fuss from us all and for sure, we are going

The horse gallops and we all shout
We sing on our way to our route
Big Boris is ever so kind
So patient even when we whine
This is so cool to the circus without grownups
Big Boris is one of us, as the horse gallops*

* The Wrapped Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of 2 or more stanzas of 6 lines each; Meter: 8,8,8,8,12,12 and Rhyme Scheme: a,a,b,b,c,c.

Refrain rule: In each stanza the first 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) in the first line must be the last 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) at the end of the last line. This is what wraps each stanza with a repeated refrain …thus, the Wrapped Refrain.

Optional: The first stanza refrain and last stanza refrain can be joined (or loosely joined) together for the title of the poem.
