The Minnesota State Fair

The Minnesota State Fair

(Short Meter Quatrains)

State Fair Crowds

The Minnesota Fair
Had lots of people there,
Who filled the street from side to side.
Colossal human tide!

There’s lots of things to do,
If you can push on through.
But lines too long prevented me
Proceeding merrily.

With very little shade,
There was a mass parade.
My grandson only saw their backs,
Or peeks between the cracks.

Still was a special day.
We found some games to play.
Enjoyed the food and rides at last.
It went by way too fast.

Author Notes
The day my grandson and I went to the fair had the highest attendance on record.

This is a short poem.
A short meter Poem has a structured syllable count of: 6-6-8-6 done in an iambic flow of one or more quatrains.

I shot this photo up near the west entrance to the fair.
