The Train



The  Train (Randyjw; February 24, 2017)


It sounds like rain on the roof of the shack

but it’s just the train, going clickety-clack

the long whistle, and the rails below

travel the grand vista as though through a grimy window

Laying on that horn, all the way down

at 3:00, 5:00, 6:00 in the morn, ’til he gets to the next town

and I hear the howling roar of the fiercely driving rain

it sounds like the monsoon or a hurricane

  1. Auditory interchange. I was just thinking of you, too. You must’ve got my ESP waves, or something… Haha! Would be neat if I could add some audio clip of a train whistle in here, but I’m on the free version of WP, so probably not.
