In warm months when the pines on the hill Seemed to talk to the creek, where the katydids spawn They would call-out their hymns, in the warm evening still With sad choirs to end, ...but the music played on........ Bill would eat cotton candy, and the children would throng To the que of the carousel, with excitement and thrill A painted horse of their own, that would take them along To his small magic world, of the carousel's mill They would sit under lights, on the fragrant green lawns And they would kiss in the dark, she would love only Bill With sad choirs to end .....but the music played on....

    I love your approach here .Beautifully written.Perhaps the last line should be a refrain as per Nette's contest? Or you have written a Rondeau here.

    Hi dearest Carrie this is very beautiful..Makes the reader becomes part of your story ...How beautiful this kind of love you describe...and how sad when the sad chores end and the music continues to play without him..Carrie you make the musical Broadway play come tolife.

    What a beautiful picture you have painted in this melodious sweet Poem Carrie. You have almost made a picture with sound where the "pines on the hill Seemed to talk to the creek" and even one can imagine the scenic beauty and joy which you have narrated in your superb writes"Carousel". It is more than beautiful. You always amaze us. My good wishes for your contest entry and thank you for your sweet and encouraging words on my Independence Day Poem. Love and best wishes always..Ravindra
