"The Circle Game" I think is by Joni Michell

I have to try to find the lyrics, I know some of them and they are beautiful, and I remember I liked it as a kid, one of my best early mem's, play my moms record on the recordplayer 1983-4, no wait that was another mem-----fukin COOL!! I just remembered one more memory, good memory from childhood!!!!!!! :-)

I remember siting by the recordplayer/ radio Listening to tina tuner "What's love gotta do with it." Standing up, I could just barely see over the piano seat, I used to grab it to pull myself up(holy crap, I must have been really young, this is great)!!!!!!!!


The Circle Game mem. was when my mom use to play gituar to me and my brother.


so, I guess back to the main topic. Has anyone heard of the song, and do you like it???

Yesterday, a child came out to wander
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star

And the seasons they go 'round and 'round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

Then, the child moved ten times 'round the seasons
Skated over ten clear frozen streams
Words like, "When you're older", must appease him
And promises of someday make his dreams

And the seasons they go 'round and 'round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came,
and go round and round and round
In the circle game

Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
And they tell him, "Take your time. It won't be long now.
'Til your drag your feet to slow the circles down"

And the seasons they go 'round and 'round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
Before the last revolving year is through.

And the seasons they go 'round and 'round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return, we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and 'round and 'round
In the circle game
And go 'round and 'round and 'round in the circle game.

Logan,

I have always liked Joni Mitchell. Her songs have such wonderful and meaningful lyrics, and as a musician she's one of the most creative instrumentalists I have ever heard. She uses a lot of what we call "open tunings", where you retune the guitar to something different from the standard tuning (EADGBE). In fact she uses so many different open tunings that some of them have never been identified!

Much love,
Larry

Logan,

I read your lyrics and downloaded the song from iTunes. Thanks for sharing.

Lots of love,

John

It's rough when we begin to allow ourselves to feel again; we have bottled things up for so long that when we let our feelings out now they just flood us. In a way we are like kids trying to learn how to pour a cup of coffee - we just tilt the pot and it splashes out all over the place!

I guess the message here, Rob, is that though it hurts like hell this is all a part of the healing process. You aren't malfunctioning, my friend, you're doing just fine. You're keeping it real, and doing that can only help you.

Much love,
Larry
