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
Now summer’s gone in happenstance
Nights of the soft sensual lilac mist
In dreamish warm colors gently kissed

such gentle, subtle words, almost like a sigh at Nature .. truly lovely

All is golden in your world as if you look only to the grandiose I think that is one reason your work is so grand
