The Trains I Know

Robert’s ‘O at the Edges’ is a great poetry blog. This post of his sits really well with my ‘railway family’.

O at the Edges


The Trains I Know

The trains I know
seek solitude
in darkness,

they wear
wind and cold
with pride,

are never
Sometimes they

sing too loud,
or mourn
harshly a

star’s fall, but
they never
deny their

purpose: to
draw between
and connect,

to witness and
serve, to bear
and endure

our unsought
to the end.
