“Merry Go Round” by MaryLynn Haggard (2009)

I play on the merry-go-round
as the fire on the round ball sets.
It gleams and glows pink and red.
It looks like a pretty rainbow.
Thunder, my horse, is attached to the
glowing Merry-go-Round.
Through the clouds I see lots of diamonds.
They are so sparkly and clear.
The moon begins to rise as the sun
begins to melt.
The birds fly back to their nests to
protect their babies and eggs.
The golden light shimmers as I
struggle to get off the ride.
The conductor helps me.
I am at the nearest gate. I run to my
mom and hug her as tight as I can.
