SAW A TRAIN!!!

SAW A TRAIN!!!

(www.railpictures.net)

It sounds like a foolish refrain,

But I actually saw a train…

At North Uxbridge crossing

It was so engrossing*

I wanted to see it again!

Coming back the other way,

I saw that train had stayed…

Didn’t stop to inquire

What had transpired,

It was in Worcester later that day.

–Jonathan Caswell

* crossing…engrossing…an example of rhyming by spelling–even if they sound differently.  Same literary device used by train…refrain…again.
