Today’s quadrille Monday at DVerse revolves around the word “wound.” We can use either or both pronunciations / meanings of the word.  I wanted to write about a certain carousel snow globe in the collection that my mom used to have (I’m not sure where it is now), but I am thinking that I can make this quadrille better. In the meantime, here it is.

My mother had a collection
Of miniature carousels:
One inside a snow-globe,
When wound up, played a melody
Which I no longer remember.

I loved to wind the crank,
Watch the falling snow

I loved to ride carousels.
Some part of me still does.
