Carrousel Race--By Dena M. Ferrari--United States

Carrousel Race

Up and down, round and round
The carousel circle flow
Around, around, up and down
Watch the wooden horse go

A childhood memory
We all have a few
A little piece of history
Will never be a fond adieux

The painted treasures we did ride
Amongst the many to choose
Our favorite was our pride
To us it did amuse

So set yourself and join the pace
The ride is almost through
We always said we won the race
As we ride as our steeds flew

Ink flows in Dena's blood and spills its words upon the Parchment of Time...
Writing since four years old, she has a lifetime of created works in many genres.
Inspiration in Nature draws more work as Dena's Muse is relentless. Thank you Karen for having this work displayed....


  1. Thank you Karen for popping this delightful memory onto your page...
    I have a picture of my children on an old carousel... ah...sweet youth!
    Have a great Day!

  2. Dear Dena,

    It was a pleasure to publish your words. Thank you for sharing your memory with us and for all you do for Whispers. I wish you the best with all your writing endeavors.


  3. Oh, how I loved the carousels, Dena. Our lives are like these carousels when the horses have their ups and downs, but still keep moving forward. I find this poem very inspirational. Best wishes, Carolyn Devonshire

  4. Beautiful visual - many will enjoy your words Dena, bringing back their own childhood memories...
