Merry Go
Yvonne B. Robery (bio)

And down and up the merry go
the horses in a round pen
turn wheels or catch a tow
on the planet's hurl through space
the amused all taking place,
let the circling begin.

And step right up, step right
with an awkward gait
walk up and see the light
of stars centered in solar
systems close as a nose, stellar
and lying in wait.

And round, round she goes
who is she in a circle spin
stop, and somebody knows
where and when, never a game
the orbits all around the same
does anyone ever win?

Yvonne B. Robery
