The Train


Connecting cross-section of people,
Connecting places,
Melancholic farewells, rapturous unions
With deep sigh it brings.

Pastures, rivers, seas call,
Hillsides, peaks, and skies call,
Farewell to thee
Nay, songs of thine farewell ringing-
in my heart,
Farewell, farewell, farewell;


Distance covered in no time,
Space lost in no time,
It propelled civilization,
The ship that crawled on land.

    This is a statement about the role of the train. It played a significant one indeed.
    I recommend it because it yields information in a delightful way.

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
