today on the first day

each in their own age and stage

to our school

many for the first time.

“everybody has to learn for the first time.”

invisible to the eye.

Standard

he was a ‘well-seasoned’ magic man

who came in

to entertain the youngest children

 while he wasn’t smooth

 his jokes and tricks and props and velvet

had been around a long time

the children loved every trick

opened their eyes wide with wonder

as doves and bunnies and coins and cards and wands and scarves

appeared and disappeared

in all kinds of unexpected places

 they eagerly

 volunteered to help him

 squealed and giggled and clapped with pure delight

until they lost their breath with laughter

he was a showstopper of the highest order

who had found the perfect audience.
