And I Did Lose Calliope

And I Did Lose Calliope

There stood a thrilling carousel

And upon its horse I’d ride

Spinning kaleidoscopically

Somewhere back in time

On days when happy endings

Surpassed elusive dreams

I had my pick of bright brass rings

To easily achieve

Yet I attempted stoically

To take a chance to need

A shining ring outside the reach

Of my colossal steed

And I did lose Calliope

As I went tumbling down

And I had lost my innocence

And soiled my lovely gown

With all its vivid colors

That ran within the rain

Of forlorn tears that took the years

And turned my days to gray

All that pretty music

Was lost inside my fall

When everything was broken

The carousel and all

The carousel and all
