Moving staircases and Horses carved and painted 

Musical delight 


Upward spirals Hypnotic and charming 

Elegant golden floral most calming 


Round and round up and down

Carousel or merry go round ?

A circular parade 

Of which very few are afraid 


You always get one crying though 

Saying "stop its too fast".. but its really slow


Simple sweet giant musical box 

Like the one that Mary Poppins rocks


The scent of candy floss in the air 

Magical carousel  fantastical Fair

I love carousels. They are a joy but also have a hint of menace or tragedy. Thank you for this poem.
