The World Keeps Spinning Round

Summer 2012 007

Clouds are clouds

they drift through the sky

some are silver-lined

they’re there to delight

to please the eye

in different shapes and sizes

but clouds remain clouds

the world keeps spinning round

fairytales are fairytales

they delight children

and amuse the adults

but fairytales never become real

they’re simply fantasy

but we can still try

to live happily ever after

‘cause the world keeps on turning

seasons bring changes

they come and they go

there is no rhyme or reason

to the changes they bring

seasons will forever do so

as long as the world keeps spinning

Ferris wheels are Ferris wheels

they go round and round

they’ll never take us anywhere

but will give us a bird’s eye view

of everything far and wide

as the world keeps going round and round

carousels are carousels

with colorful wooden horses

the horses will never come to life

but we can take a fun-time ride

and perhaps one day

catch the golden ring

as the world continues spinning

we are who we are

each one of us individually

having a purpose and goal in life

all of us with a different thought

living in this world

that keeps going round and round

while always new adventure is found

  1. Aways different, always the same.
    I am grateful for the turning – and for the seasons. I also hope never to be so old that I don’t marvel at the clouds.

      I believe cloud watching is something you can keep doing all of your life. The best thing is that in the summertime as I gaze upon clouds I am transported back to childhood by my memories.
