Merry Go Round

The freedom of a carousel
Excited a horse ride at Riverview
Along ago pleasure slips away
-merry go round

Just like my past, it’s now closed
Childhood memories long to embrace
Protected behind steel gates and chains
-of a vivid lifetime

Don’t grow up too fast!
Parents advised
Run, play and laugh
Maturity interfered
-games changed

Hand carved wooden horses
Painted red, blue, white and gold
Others of assorted colors
-the ones I chose

Safety in innocence
Fun to be carefree
Living life with joy
-at the Merry Go Round
