A Rail With No Goal


Art stone that tumbles
Underneath the shallow water.

Live life 'thout grumbles
In sorrow or laughter.

Faith to thyself,
Effort and courage.

Drown to one's yelp
In a hollow cage

Rose from thine sleep
Experiment thine seed

Consume; thine schlep
To future beheed

A train with no coal
A rail with no goal

Fear naught thine sole
Fear naught lives' bestole

Set first yet footsteps
yet never aloft one

Count ne'er one's debts
non-abstract'll begone

Naught a single trace
of hope be on maze

There're No other ways,
just wastin' the days

Path leads to path
None can anew what ye hath

All are foretold
thy've none to behold

We're on a common freight
On an identical highway
In A train with no coal
& A rail with no goal.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
