The Merry Go Around

The Merry Go Around

The golden rings that hang within a reach
If caught or not, the journey ‘round will teach
The empty hand each time to stretch out more,
The hand that’s full, to grab and raise the score.

Around, around, the passengers pass by
The golden rings that hang before the eye
Like apples hanging on the apple tree
That grow where paradise is asked to be.

Around, around, sights fixed upon the rings,
Though more or less, no satisfaction brings,
And yet, the merry go around…around
To seek where satisfaction can be found.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
