In the Rhythm of a Train

Inspired by, "From a train carriage’. Robert Louis Stevenson. In the rhythm of a train: in 15 lines, 112 words. diddly dar diddly dar.

START ENGINES, SIGNALS ON GREEN.

THERE’S SO MUCH YET, THAT NEEDS TO BE SEEN.

LEAVING GLASGOW AT A SLOW PACE.

SANDSTONE TENEMENTS FULL IN YOUR FACE.

ONTO THE BRIDGE OF IRON WE RIDE.

PASSING OVER THE ANCIENT CLYDE.

BREATHING SCOT’S AIR, CRISP AND PURE.

SOON TO ARRIVE AT HAUNTED DALMUIR.

WAS IT A PHANTOM THERE, WE SAW.

THE SIGNAL BOX AT GARELOCHHEAD,

EIGHTEEN LEVERS, IT IS SAID.

THERE TO PULL FORWARD AND TO HEAVE BACK.

TO GUIDE THE TRAIN ONTO THE RIGHT TRACK.

SINGLE LINE, NOTHING SPOKEN,

CANNOT GO THROUGH WITHOUT A TOKEN.

117 words.
