The fantastic hides and we’re unaware,

Turning to look, we might find we’re too scared. 

Adventures, colour, world with beasts daring, 

They’ll ask a question —answer with great care. 

Creatures with magic, books jammed with thoughts, stairs —

Causing absurd scenes, stairs move everywhere. 

The fantastic hides and we’re unaware. 

Turning to look, we might find we’re too scared.  

Magicians do tricks; hands, winding music blares, 

Beauty in circus apparel she stares. 

Without a body; her arms and hands fair, 

Melodic music raises our arm hairs. 

The fantastic hides and we’re unaware.

    Ah how beautiful! The fantastic hides and we’re unaware! I so much adore magic shows! Even now, whenever I find a magic show happening anywhere, I do pay a visit! I bought books to learn magic with my savings in childhood! I loved it so much! 😀

        Yes, but at few times after showing the trick, my friends would start chasing me! “It must be in your pockets!” they would shout! 😀
