MEMORIES OF CHRISTMAS TRAINS

EDAVILLE is where one goes,

Riding narrow rails when it snows…

Christmas displays

Along rights of way,

all lit up in lights!

The “North Pole Express” is running,

All over the country by cunning…

Railroad lines

Wanting happier times,

Santa they know is coming!

Look in the papers to see,

Where Christmas trains are running shortly…

It’s worth paying

For children’s playing,

Making positive memory!

CHRISTMAS TRAINS!!!!

CHRISTMAS TRAINS!!!

 

A FAMILY TRADITION STILL

Is running (that’s EDAVILLE)…

Those great Christmas lights

On snowy cold nights,

For generations have given a thrill.

They have their version of

The “North Pole Express” to love…

At “edaville.com”

The info is on,

It’s a good ride to be dreaming of!

AUTUMN HUMMING

AUTUMN IS HUMMING

 

Two pumpkins grace the entrance,

Either side of the door…

Out in the flowerbeds

 Planting mums is in store.

The price has gotten low enough

That even we, the poor…

Can buy mums for the windowsill,

Away from winter’s roar.

The Santa trains are being prepared,

At EDAVILLE, things will shine…

Will the Grafton and Upton

Do something in kind?

Maple trees and aspens

Are oft the first to turn…

Glowing foggy mornings,

Helping the mist off-burn.

Soon I’ll put a snow shovel

Back inside the car…

Remembering the times when

I couldn’t get very far.

Oktoberfest is coming

To our Douglas town…

I hope we’ll have some dollars

To spend when it comes ’round!!!!

WHAT TRAINS?

 

CranberryFest

WHAT TRAINS?

 

A friend asked about EDAVILLE,

He thought I could use a thrill…

He’s wanting knowing

If the train’s still going

Around on it’s fruit-bog circle.

I’m afraid he was dismayed,

I could not give what he craved…

What’s a train, let me see

In distant memory,

OH YEAH, where I frequently played!

But that seems so long ago

Since I LOOKED at one, ya know…

Of my time most

Is spent on these posts,

With this is my mind enthralled.

So today, I went and looked up

The subject of his interrupt…

EDAVILLE still runs

For the kids and funds,

I’m sorry my knowledge wasn’t up.

COME TO EDAVILLE

(www.edaville.com)

COME TO EDAVILLE

(Tune of” “Christmas is Coming”)

Come back to EDAVILLE,

Before it’s all closed down…

How will the kids remember

When it’s not around.

If you haven’t got a train set,

A train picture will do…

If you don’t have a train picture…

EDAVILLE IS THROUGH!

They’re selling the property

For ten million bucks,

If we had the moula*

We’d buy some railroad trucks…

If you haven’t got the moula*

An old postcard will do…

If you haven’t got an old postcard,

EDAVILLE IS THROUGH!

In this Christmas season

Trains are running late,

If you don’t get down to ride

It will be too late…

If you can’t get a train ride

The carousel will do,

If you can’t ride something…

EDAVILLE IS THROUGH.

NOTE:  *moula is slang…for money!
