Round in Circles

Roundabout, Pendleton, Salford – Image : BF Kirkham

Heading off on a journey ?

enjoy the trip

a ride you haven’t enjoyed since you were young

driving round and round

in a vain attempt to find the right road out

noted you thought you knew the right direction –

going to be dizzy when you finally find the right exit

Magic roundabout II

Salford 17th April 2020

Maybe it was magic

as me and my little sister

gracefully rode around in circles

in those little cars going around and around

colourful lights going on and off

Revolutions

of colourful characters – going

up and down and round and around

not so fast though – to protect little tums

driving a car or riding a horse

aided by the magic mirrored motor in the middle

bundles of fun for young and old alike

only – you’ll be distracted by the rides for the older kids

until you get to their age

throwing caution to the wind, and lunch on your lap

Acrostic Freedom of Expression Music Poetry

Acrostical Melody

Melody

Many notes played by an Instrument in an ordered way

Ever tuneful to the open ear

Lovingly drawn out by the composers pen

Of moments of time, love and life

Devine lines of notes that skip through the air

Yearly played out at the roundabout at th’ fair.
