Tritina for Railways

York , April 7th 2016

Having visited the National Railway Museum in York today, I’ve been inspired to write this Tritina in honour of the railways….enjoy .   P.S. Comes with Flying Scotsman Pic!

Opposite the Flying Scotsman – Bill, Nigel and Joe

The Horses came down the country Roads

Delivering by cart Black gold – Coal

To move the Iron Horse by Steam

And these mighty horses – fuelled by coal

Moved across rails on road

Powered by steam

Wheels of steel moved by steam

Replaced wagons on road

using engines fuelled by coal

    Fab poem – I’ve yet to get to that museum, used to pass it a lot when I lived in the north east. Also snap with the form 🙂

      Thanks Bee!!! I’m glad you liked it – will put an appropriate photo on the page when I’ve retrieved the Sim Card from my Camera (which, is still in the bag!!!!)
