that works for me and here is my entry.

Carnivals are so much fun!
Fariswheels go round and round
Teacups are spinning too.
People screaming with delight
As the music blares
Booths are set up to hold games
Children are playing to win
There goes one child with a bear
And there is another with a ball
Look! An auction
I wonder what is for sale.
Maybe a pony or something else.
Boy I am hungry. Where is the food?
Oooh! A pretzal and a slushie too!
Maybe I will get a hot dog 
Or maybe nothing at all.
The sounds, the smells, the energy of it all
The carnival is so much fun!
Reader of all
Amazingly bright
Neverendingly sweet
Daring and adventurous
Always there to help a friend

Ride at the Carnival
(Can you guess which one?)

I stand in line,
watching, listening, waiting,
cotton candy churning
in the pit of nervousness
that is my stomach.
I reach the front
and move all the way to the last seat
so more people can fit.
Clinging to the handles
on my seat,
I tip back
and move up slowly.
Then I start to tip downwards.
Gravity takes me down,
I throw my hands up
and all the people I am with
as we plummet towards the ground.

A little while later I ask,
Can I go on it again?
When all are one and one is all,
When terrible leaders and cities fall,
When all hatred has been locked away,
Peace and love will be here to stay.

When lights are gleaming and see all these rides...
You know where you are.
You here the screams beond the horizon
you know you will soon be at the carnival.
you wait til' you get there...

I think there should be another contest...any subject, but a specified type of poem.
When all are one and one is all,
When terrible leaders and cities fall,
When all hatred has been locked away,
Peace and love will be here to stay.

We are here at the carnival.
My Little Sister Runs Off,
My Mom Chases After Her,
I Wait in Line,
Finally I am almost on the line,
Weee. I am sitting on the ride.
The handle goes down.
I whirl around from side to side.
The strip is connected to 3 carts.
Yay! Weee. Whooo-hoo!
The ride stops.
Can I Go On Again?

Can you guess what ride I am on?

Instant of Relief

Hair flying, eyes sparkling,
World blurring in a whirl of fun.
Merrily 'round and 'round
Swirls the laughter of children.

Riding plastic toys like real;
Imagining, hoping
This world would last forever-
Riding on the fun of an instant.

Ride over, reality resumes
Waiting for another moment
To pass with clear, crystal sparkle

Waiting for the world to blur
Waiting for worries to fade
And hope, dreams, laughter
To take their places

Hoping for reality to dissipate,
For the rain of relief
From this age of knowledge
Of the horrors of the world.

Hop on the carnival rides.
Let your dreams take you away
In the blur of an instant;
Happy sparkle of a moment of relief.
