Female Circus Acrobat Balancing on Rope

I was given the task of creating a poem based on the photo of two boys sitting on a hill: this is what I came up with

Upon a hill after the sun has set

The boys take a seat

It was a shock when their parents let them go

They’re curious as to what feat

The woman will do this time

Her strength causes gasps to ring out

There was nearly a accident when the mime

Got distracted by the lout

The boys love the circus

Distracting them from sadness

And letting them forget

Just for a night, the madness
