On Carousel's Sweet Ride

On Carousel's Sweet Ride

A Poem by An owl on the moon

On a wish and a prayer...















Swirling enchanted alabaster skies

In trembling voice a June berry sighs

In the fragrance of a black velvet rose

With wonders how the seasons grow

Hovering on the carousel’s sweet ride

My horse bounding meadows in stride

Painted gold yarrow’s drifting dance

Now summer’s gone in happenstance

Nights of the soft sensual lilac mist

In dreamish warm colors gently kissed

I’m lifted now on those golden wings

Soaring on childhood’s whispered swing

Starlight, star bright, every star align tonight

When they ignite, bring every dream in sight...

Painted gold yarrow’s drifting dance-------------------------Oh I do love those two lines. I can close my eyes and imagine riding the carousel horse across those meadows... with the gold yarrow. I always did love carousels.....and this poem makes me see that wild yarrow in my backyard in a different light... thank you for such a beautiful poem
