It's over the hill ~~ Writing for Tuesday

 Just over the hill 

What's over the hill, do you want to know
You may think you know but do you really
I surely don't know what lies over there
We shall wait and see

It's all new to me I expect to see
Chickens and horses lambs and pigs as well
Farmer's pride with colors changed from the last
We can wait and see

Perhaps there'll be a circus fun and bright
Clowns and tight rope walkers trapeze artists
Three rings, bears walking elephants painting
Can we wait and see 

Or a shopping strip with gasoline oil
A place to grab a bite use the rest room
Buy the kids a toy Ice cream cone to go
We will wait and see

You've been there before now won't be the same 
You'll see yesterday has changed for today 
We don't know ahead hope for a surprise 
We must wait and see

Oh this is certainly the case revisiting a place so many years after the last time. Sadly for me I always prefer the place I once knew for thats is where my memories are. However with kids you can be excited too for them!

Oh, the waiting is palpable in your verse. There's this underlying excitement which makes it so full of life and pleasure.

I smiled, remembering road trips I went on with the family when my kids were little.

Meh. Sometimes the other side of the hill is better. Usually it's just different. I hope what the speaker finds is at least different in an interesting way.

Things certainly do not stay the same do they? I remember going back to my grandparents home when I was a bit older and suddenly it seemed so small when I remembered it being big. I was going to say you could practically have done this for the prompt we had at The Sunday Muse....here is the link https://thesundaymuse.blogspot.com/ Join us sometime, we would love for you to participate.

Oh the joy of exploring unfamiliar places, Jim, which you've captured in this poem!

You've been there before now won't be the same
You'll see yesterday has changed for today

Mysteriously presented is a situation that will be more appreciated as the scene will be akin to a new picture to be further explored.A good one Dr Jim!

Just wanted to pop back and say you are very welcome on the invite to the Muse. :-) I understand being blogged down with reading and blogging, so just join us eventually at any time in the future. We will still be there.

Yes, the Grass is always greener on the other side. Getting there is one thing, but jumping the fence is still another. We dontd Know the "other side" until we awaken to see it.
Love the Poem, Jim.

Why am I suddenly hearing the chorus of "Anticipation!" Your varied repetition of each stanza's closing line works wonders!
