Those were the puff puff days

Steam Train

by persevere

As the train approached the tunnel
A bellow issued from the funnel
The whistle blew and cinders flew
The locomotive slowed,then sped up anew

Further down the line it started to rain
The steam joined in, in a gentle refrain
The rhythmic click clack of the wheels on the line
Conjured up a song that would mark this time
