Carousel

- poem by MJ-
Pix of a musical animated carousel Teyla and I bought last Christmas. It features six Christmas melodies. Wish you could hear it playing!

Love is
a carousel ride. 
Dizzying, 
Titillating, 
Sweet music playing.
 A blur of passing colors, 
of psychedelic rainbows, 
As you and I go spinning 
Round and round,
Round and round.
 Spring and summer
Winter, fall. 
Sometimes I think
of jumping off 
But, your love, 
It holds me captive
always. 
And I stay. 
I'm glad I stayed. 
Love is
a carousel ride. 
Titillating, 
Sweet music playing; 
Through the years, 
So enchanting. 
And I'm staying;
 Ain't goin' nowhere. 
Let me be dizzy ... 
Dizzy with you.

    1. wow, beth, i'm tickled that you guys love this poem so much:) i originally scribbled it on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt while i was sitting on the couch few days ago, taking a break from reading a book (the receipt was my bookmark) with teyla sleeping there beside me. yes, love is a wonderful thing indeed. and we may feel like "jumping off" every now and then, but the important thing, i believe, is that we stay. thanks, beth!
