Carousel - Poem by Nicole Baker

Round and round it goes
Spinning faster and faster and time goes by
The ringmaster laughing at the little boys and girls screams of joy
Their parents watching from the sidelines a
As their precious cargo is taken on a tour they will never forget
Painted horses are their vehicles today
Taking them to a world of magic and wonder
Where dreams will never die and come true
If you just wish that little extra harder
Nothing seems impossible
And the future doesn't seem so bleak
And it feels like you will never grow old
Just think
Carousels are not just for children
They are for adults too
Parents who remember their first kiss with their new partner
On that faithful ride where he proposed down on one knee
Adults clamber back on the horse
Screaming with laughter
You never grow too old for a carousel
And the carousel never grows tired of going around in the same old circle
It is its job
That's what it was created for
To bring laughter and joy to the now so serious world we live in
When you next see a carousel
Don't just walk past it, forgetting it
Stare at it's beauty
And if you dare
Take a ride
Go on... you know you want to
What harm could it do?
