What is Christmas without a train around the tree,

Not to asked of a railfan…

For a railroad fan knows that it ought to be

And will be, on their demand.

Older folks remember the train

They took to be with families at home…

Modern day folk may think it’s just a toy,

A tradition that their family’s settled on.

My own train around our little tree

May be set up tonight…

On the end of our table near the windowsill,

So our neighbors are cheered by the sight.

We will be gone but I wonder if I could

Set it up to run automatically…

With everything else, funds must be spent,

So maybe…next year…we’ll see!  🙂
