The Magic Roundabout

Carousels in Avignon, Macon and St Tropez

Carousels in Avignon, Macon and St Tropez

AnElephantCant contain his excitement
When he explains you know how he must feel
Like Santa and Puff
And Billy Goat Gruff
Some things are magic but perfectly real

He wonders if you can tell what he means here
Vivid colours and lights shining bright
Airplanes and sports cars
Rockets flying to Mars
Spinning circles of transcendental delight

They have the enchantment of springtime in Scotland
Mustard daffodils and musical bluebells
Lucky white heather
A ptarmigan’s feather
The fabulation of fairground carousels

Perhaps even better than spaceships and helicopters
Is the abundance of fantastiful creatures
White horses giraffes
Meeces that make wee tots laugh
And AnElephant with happy smiley features

Cartoon characters like Mickey and Pluto
Bugs Bunny munching carrot flavoured biscotti
Daffy and Dumbo
The way too cute flying jumbo
And the Beautiful Loser our chum Wile E Coyote

Throughout France almost every town has one
AnElephant enjoys them in place after place
The bestestest part
Like a peppermint fart
Is the smile on each kiddlywink’s face

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    As a child, my absolute favorite ride was the Carousel – merry-go-round. Thank you, I love this one.

    It’s real, it’s no trick,
    Just ask the pelican.
