the carousel

Post by spro » Wed Apr 22, 2020 3:17 pm

Parts of Joni Mitchell stick in my mind. My sister listened to girl groups because she was girl soon to become more mature. The carousel goes round and round and painted ponies up and down . We are trapped in a carousel of life. missed something here.. 'round to where we came and go round again in the circle game. I like to hear that. Sweet remember yet the end of Hitchcock's ' "Strangers in a train" has a chilling carousel episode worth seeing.

The Circle Game
Joni Mitchell

Yesterday a child came out to wonder
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star
And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the 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
Then the child moved 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
And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the 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…

Thanks, Eric for providing the original lyrics. Then imagine her voice singing it while she was playing her instruments.

Hey Eric and continual thanks for the stanzas. We can't be trapped into one way nor forget the other. Seems like Joni M mentioned some things which were plastered or sprayed . She didn't cause billions dollars damage.
Billions stop and out.

It wasn't "We" and far from it. It was You all the time .
