Train Journey

Through square windows the scenery flashes
Train lumbering through the countryside
Past fields of frost bitten grass
And plows set aside for the winter
Canal banks and rivers wide
Railway sidings
And factories
Clouds like sheep in their pasture
Layers of colours on the landscape
Walls made of stone and mortar
Forest edges and foxes scared
Rabbits in the burrows there
Cows waiting by the gate
For milking time to come around

Past a castle, past a farm
Little boxes where people live
Train persists up the hill
Soon at the destination
The journey part of the recollection
