The Carousel…

The horses spin on the carousel,

Capturing their riders in their spell,

Children eating candyfloss on their backs,

Racing along invisible tracks.

Holding tightly to their mane,

Around they go and around again,

The Wurlitzer plays its merry tune,

By the light of the sun and the merry moon.

When midnight strikes the horses run free,

Across the fields down to the sea,

To join the waves and frolic there,

Away from people and the noise of the fair.

Their magic released they gallop as one,

Until darkness fades and the rise of the sun,

Returning quietly over hill and dale,

The horses keep their secret tale.
