The Carousel Rides

A Poem by Sharmelle's Expressions

The Carousel Rides at The Mall of America, Minnesota State Fair, and WBL Shopping Center.


The Carousel Rides

I could not believe how much you loved the carousel rides When you were a child.
We always had fun on the carousel rides when we went to Camp Snoopy
At the Mall of America where you went on many other rides too. We went wild
With Grandmother Diane Hall, let’s say whoopee!

We also went wild At the Minnesota State Fair in 1998 with the carousel
rides. Plus, many other rides for the kids at the Minnesota State Fair
We stopped to eat at many different places where their foods were Baked/Cooked well.
Which gave the State Fair a very big flair.

We went on the carousel rides at the White Bear Lake Shopping Center
And you enjoyed it so much that we let you go on more than once.
Then we went to Apple Bees to have lunch; as we all gather
At the table which was a matter of considerable significance.

Friendly Note: At the time we were at the Mall of America in Minnesota it was called Camp Snoopy. I know they have changed the name now.
