Wait

#fowc #wait

Time passes slowly

As you sit waiting for the train

To come rolling down the track

And into the station

Timetable isn’t friendly

It’s saying it’s on its way

So to distract you from the empty arrival

Your sat with your radio on play

And each tick that follows tock

Seems to be on a lock

As you wait for whoever forlorn

Listening out for the diesel trains horn

Carriage

#fowc #carriage

Sat by the platform

it waits for the sign as

gentlemen and ladies alike

now make their way to their furnished cabins

a wonderful journey to places wonderful

lakes mountains and streams – but they have to wait for the flag

waiting

Waiting

the town bell chimed five

as the morning shift stood as one

awaiting the tram home

 

tickets bought, train on way

nothing to do, less to say

so they stand waiting

 

man of the tracks looks

forwards and back, as Silver

wheels trundle across rail

 

The time seems to stand

slowing down your party plans

and the puddles splash

The Train Set

The train was never late,
not in our town.
Track fixed on a surface, brown.

Two lines with sidings
and stations along the way
Three clockwork engines
with wagons to play

Going down two tracks
from east to the west
passing through bridges
built by the best

And Engine made sound,
like the locos of the past
built by a craftsman,
you knew it would last

As you pulled all your cargo,
from city to th’sea
till mum or dad called up
it’s time for your tea!
