I am beauty.
I am lilting music and sparkling jewels,
flashing eyes and tossing heads.
I am freedom.
I am childhood’s yearning for new horizons,
lived out in the security of the familiar.
I am an oasis in time.
An eternal joy.
I am yesterday and tomorrow forever captured
in this present iridescence of color.
I am laughter and delight.
I am movement.
I am the rhythm of silver hooves
and twinkling lights.
I am Neverland,
the Elysian fields.
I am the Carousel!
