At last, windmill!
Windmills have always fascinated me since childhood, the reason I've always wanted to travel to the Netherlands, the windmill capital of the world.
For the meantime, this windmill on Island Park was enough to enchant the child in me.
Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending on beginning on an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's 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....
