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

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
