The Circle Game


The Circle Game


Yesterday a child came out to wander Caught a dragonfly inside a jar Fearful when the sky is 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're captives on a carousel of time We can't return we can only look behind from where we came And go round and round and round in the circle game Now the child's gone ten times round the seasons Skated over ten clear frozen streams Words like 'When you're older' must appease him And promises of someday make his dreams (Chorus) Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town And they tell him take your time it won't be long now 'Til you drag your feet to slow the circle down Chorus Years go by and now the child is twenty Though some dreams have lost some grandeur coming true There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty Before the last revolving year is through Chorus And go round and round and round in the circle game
