Round
Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that is turning
Running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Like a tunnel that you follow
To a tunnel of its own
Down a hollow to a cavern
Where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving
In a half-forgotten dream
Or the ripples from a pebble
Someone tosses in a stream
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Keys that jingle in your pocket
Words that jangle in your head
Why did summer go so quickly?
Was it something that you said?
Lovers walk along a shore
And leave their footprints in the sand
Is the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand?
Pictures hanging in a hallway
And the fragment of a song
Half-remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong?
When you knew that it was over
You were suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the colour of his hair

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

I can't decide if I prefer Ms Springfield's rendition or Mr Feliciano's.

Let's face it, I'm not good with decisions.

I, still, ♥ the views said...

I like the guitar on Dusty's

:-)

(I'm not good with decisions either, but I know what I like!)

Another beautiful song I remember from Mother's radio in the mornings while I was getting ready for school.
I think I'd have to go with Mr Feliciano's version purely because it's the one I used to hear all those years ago.....I think!

Well, well...one does, indeed, learn "new" things all the time. See, like Ziggi, I recall "Thomas Crown" (McQueen and Dunaway, for you young uns!)and Noel Harrison. I did not know Dusty S. sang this!
