The Rails


You are one
And I’m the other
The two rails running in parallel
Never join
We shoulder the burden together
When comes a train
And when a storm attacks
Our positions together we maintain.

The rails
Your are one
And I’m the other
The two run side by side
Never need to intersect

The train rolls away
They nod to signal
And smile a smile of understanding
After the storm

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
