Memories of a Carousel

I chose to ride the unicorn So high up off the ground There began a little dream When I went round and round Wonderful magic that I found Moving colors did my eyes adorn Like lovely ribbons to astound Knowing now my steeds white horn Forever to that carousel bound Now I, my childhood do mourn When I went round and round...

    Enjoyed reading this one..I remember the days of carousels..Still like to get on one..Thanks for the visit to my work..Warf rats, cats, all kinds of insects, and mice to get in those dumpsters and travel..Some make unharmed but some get the axe.. Sara
