The Carousel of Life

“And the seasons, they go round and round,
And the painted ponies go up and down.
We’re captive on the carousel of time.”
Joni Mitchell

The Carousel

Life is like a carousel
That spins within our life
And we are only passengers
Riding along up and down
While the world spins slowly around

Life is such a carousel
Brilliant colors, shiny objects
For all to see and touch
Music from every style and range
For all to hear and love

Life was once a carousel
For all the young and old
No worries or cares
Just simple joys
Love once made our world go around

Life is just a carousel
With all it’s ups and downs
You must hold on
Until the ride is over
And then you must step down

  1. Beautiful, JR! I think that we all hope, like children, that the ride lasts forever. There’s an old amusement part nearby, and they have a wonderful carousel, with old painted horses and carriages that never seem to change. I find comfort, even as an adult, to get on that old carousel and recall wonderful memories of my youth. Thanks for sharing!!!!
