My mind rests high above
Cotton candy circus clouds
Below the big top sun
And spin silently round and back
Reaching heights unseen
Locked into a spring time dream
On clouds of thought
Spent at the midway.
A ticket to ride
Pennies the price
Through fog of chance
I see the lights below
Yet not ready yet to let it end,
This ride put up then stripped down again
And moving along to the next destination
Rising up yet again
Waiting for new thoughts to climb in
To see the eternal sights
Under the star filled skies tonight.
Thrills and spectacles abound
Just make a wish and it will be
The joy for all eternity.
The fair is in town and seeing the big tents in the distance as we drive, remembering as a child all the magic and fun inside. Oh, and there’s rides too…..
