Merry-go-round

Faster ! Faster!

blurs of orange, pink, red, purple

curly hair going wild

daring each other to let go

lie back

close your eyes

stand up

round and round

squeeeeeeeaaaaaaallllllsssss

of exhilaration

delight

you are 3 and 5

the perfect age to soak up the first day of spring

On  the merry- go- round

  1. I can feel the energy and excitement of innocent childhood. A moment to treasure always. As I’m writing this I’m listening to,”Tis a gift to be simple tis a gift to be free.” Reminds me of what your children must feel at the park.

  2. I loved merry go rounds when I was a bit younger. I love the way that you emphasized certain words and made the poem feel like it does when going round and round. Nice!
