Traveling Wonder

Report Story

What it truly means

The iron horse dominated its place

Its thundering action always left its trace

It always had a job to do; that was its duty

The appearance did its share; it always has been a beauty.

“Full steam ahead!” was the shout everyone heard

He said it with fervor and pride, never feeling undeterred

He loved his engine and drove it with ease

Can I join you on board, oh pretty please?

The sounding of the whistle was a delight

It showed off the engine’s terrific great might

It captured the attention with a long stare

They waived with happiness and great love affair.

It was revolutionary, you travelled much faster

Under the wing of the chief head master

You watched on as everything passed by

The trip was as soothing as a nice lullaby.

It helped build nations, it was a handy tool

It found support from the majority rule

It was hard work, not for the faint-of-heart

It was his accomplishment, his work-of-art.

You enter a grand station, oh what a sight!

It was ideal for the consummate playwright

Farewell lovely train, I’ll see you again

My love for you is hard to restrain.
