Davidson, J. (n.d.). Song of a Train. Retrieved from


Excerpt: A MONSTER taught // To come to hand // Amain, // As swift as thought // Across the land // The train. // The song it sings // Has an iron sound; // Its iron wings // Like wheels go round. // Crash under bridges, // Flash over ridges, // And vault the downs; // The road is straight - // Nor stile, nor gate; // For milestones - towns! // Voluminous, vanishing, white, // The steam plume trails; // Parallel streaks of light, // THe polished rails. // Oh, who can follow? // The little swallow, // The trout of the sky: // But the sun // Is outrun, // And Time passed by. // O'er bosky dens, // By marsh and mead, // Forest and fens // Embodied speed // Is clanked and hurled; // O'er rivers and runnels; // And into the earth // And out again // In death and birth // That know no pain, // For the whole round world // Is a warren of railway tunnels. // Hark! hark! hark!
