The Roaring Train

by dovemarie

The train waits on the gleaming tracks
I see the steam roll through the air
Rain is falling on passengers
As they hear conductor's bellow:
"All aboard!" through the pelting rain
The steam hisses, ready to roll
Rain dripping down the blurred windows
Thundering of the wheels roaring
Clanging of the bell is my song
