Poetry by Jeff Green


Just you and me on a train

There’s nothing quite like sitting on a train
You’re wondering what thrills the trip will bring
As countryside rolls past the window pane
And you listen to the songs the wheels sing

Mountains in the distance travel too
But stations and their towns flash by half seen
In the seat that faces me is you
Smiling at the passing country scene

Another smile is hidden in my face
It’s driven by the thoughts of things to be
The reason that we journey to this place
And also that you’re travelling with me

Adventure on a train has still more charms
You cannot drive your car in lovers arms.
