The Circle Game


The Circle Game


Yesterday a child came out to wander Caught a dragonfly inside a jar Fearful when the sky was full of thunder And tearful at the falling of a star Chorus: And the seasons, they go round and round and the painted ponies go up and down We are captive on the carousel of time We can't go back we can only look behind from where we came and go round and round and round in the circle game Now the boy's gone ten times round the seasons skated over ten clear frozen streams Words like when your older must appease him and promises of someday make his dreams Chorus Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now Cartwheels turn to carwheels through the town And they tell him take your time it wont be long now before you drag your feet to slow the circle down Chorus Years go by and now the boy is twenty dreams have lost their grandeur of coming true but there'll be new dreams maybe better dreams of plenty before the last revolving here is through Chorus
