Carnival Ride

Last night I went on a carnival ride
And you were there by my side

As it flew towards the sky
I let out a content sigh

When you asked what was wrong
I uttered nothing and you took my hand holding it strong

Afterwords we shared something sweet
That was far from your biggest feat

Like when you won that teddy bear
Covered in fuzzy pink hair

But when I leaned in for a hug
I landed face first on the rug

For as realistic as it did seem
It was nothing but a dream

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
