Brightly painted horses prance
On poles made out of brass
The jumpers and the standers
With their eyes made out of glass
They roam around on wooden decks
Of finely painted wood
The children laugh and smile
As the crowd around them stood
The sound of the calliope
The clanging of the bell
The children know the ride will start
A whoop, a scream, and yell!
A blur of colored horses
As the carousel gains speed
As little girls and boys sit tall
Upon their wooden steed
The days of old will always be
The pride of Keansburg's past
The golden days of carousel
Into my heart are cast

I wrote this about a Loof Carousel That I ran many years ago at Keansburg Amusement Park, Keansburg, New Jersey. It has been torn down now, but it's memories remain a part of me.
