Country Travels

Sound of the train
Beating the track
Passing the clouds
Grey and black
Sun shining out
Through bluest sky
Warming the field
As birds fly by.

Houses on hills
Marking the fen
Dogs taking walks
Past rivers
And then
Rattling on
The song of the rails
Is almost gone.

Gone are marshes
Green and low
Gone is the cladding
Of barns below
Buildings and lights
Tower and beam
Leaving behind
The country scene.
