SOCS-Ring-A-Round Memories

This post is my contribution to Stream of Consciousness Saturday for 7/11/15 and the prompt is “ring.”

Ring a-round-a rose from Mother Goose

Ring a-round-a rose from Mother Goose

Ring-a-round the rosie,

A pocket full of posies,

Ashes, Ashes

We all fall down!

Hey diddle, diddle

Hula hoop’s ring twirls a-round my middle

I make it spin a-round and a-round

His High School ring on my finger

The band made to fit

With nail polish painted

Over dental floss wound

A-round and a-round.

My birth home San Francisco has trolley cars

That really do climb all the way

To the moon and the stars and

Each brakeman has a special ring for the bell

While the cable turns a-round, a-round

I took a chance on a young man

and left my Emerald City

Hearts brought together with two golden rings

And arms wrapped around each other

A-round and a-round.
