In The Train

Rating: 3.1
AS we rush, as we rush in the Train,
   The trees and the houses go wheeling back,
But the starry heavens above the plain
   Come flying on our track.

All the beautiful stars of the sky,
   The silver doves of the forest of Night,
Over the dull earth swarm and fly,
   Companions of our flight.

We will rush ever on without fear;
   Let the goal be far, the flight be fleet!
For we carry the Heavens with us, dear,
   While the Earth slips from our feet!

Whatever be the the kind of train described in the poem, the focus remains on the thrill of its speed and beauty of a changing landscape during its journey. Enjoyed reading it. I quote: - Let the goal be far, the flight be fleet! While the Earth slips from our feet!
