The Trains I Know



The Trains I Know

The trains I know
seek solitude
in darkness,

they wear
wind and cold
with pride,

are never
Sometimes they

sing too loud,
or mourn
harshly a

star’s fall, but
they never
deny their

purpose: to
draw between
and connect,

to witness and
serve, to bear
and endure

our unsought
to the end.

  1. It is true, isn’t it, that after a while we get to know the trains in our life; when to listen for them, when to expect them to pass, what days they will be carrying such and such. Lovely idea, the trains you know…
