The Brass Ring

I ride the carousel

on a fine white charger
and I see the ring shining

I’ve tried so many times
but I’ve always missed
just by inches

But this time I can stretch
just a little more
because I know

My Mother is helping me
in the stirrups

Hold on, Mom!
Here comes that brass ring again!
