A Book Of Poems
"Circle's Apprentice"
by Dan Beachy-Quick  
“that our life is an apprenticeship to the truth,
that around every circle another is drawn;
that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning;

that there is always another dawn risen, mid-noon,
and under every deep a lower deep opens.”

"...And certainly the ancient tradition is that circles are the most beautiful objects in the world - I began to think about what makes them beautiful. I’ll only give the last one of my conclusions - one of the beauties of a circle is that if you sit around it everybody’s equal, and King Arthur’s Round Table was established for that purpose, so that all the knights should be the same - that is one of the beauties of a circle;  every place on it is, as is often said in the literature, beginning and end at once -  it has a determinable center, just one, and there are dozens and dozens of other good characteristics that it has."

Harry Chapin
Live in Germany on April 12, 1977
All my life's a circle,
sunrise and sundown
Moon rolls through the night-time
till the daybreak comes around
All my life's a circle I can't tell you why
Seasons spinning round again,
the years keep rolling by

Seems like I've been here before,
I well remember when
I've got a funny feeling that we'll all be together again
No straight lines make up my life,
all my roads are bends
There's no clear-cut beginning
and so far no dead ends

I've found you a thousand times,
I know you've done the same
Then we lose each other, it's like a children's game
If I find you here again
the thought comes through my mind
Life is like a circle,
let's go round one more time

Great post Michelle. Thanks for the Harry video, I somehow don't remember this song, but I really liked it :)
I gave my grandson this book last year:

Yes the round table is made for peaceful interactions! This book showed it as well.
