A CAROUSEL STATE OF MIND
in response to the painting "Winter Carousel"
by Robert William Addison
In the deep of winter it may come to you,
as though sent by wizards who know
the human heart can grow cold,
in need of small magicks…
say on a February day, perhaps,
when the season begins to hurt,
out of the blue you will catch a melody,
hear the prancing of riderless horses
and the bitter wind will soften,
frosty edges of your heart begin to melt.
Suddenly it is summer, and you are readyto begin the whirling dance once more…
