‘We who have looked each other in the eyes
This journey long, and trundled with the train,
Now to our separate purposes must rise,
Becoming decent strangers once again.
The little chamber we have made our home
In which we so conveniently abode,
The complicated journey we have come,
Must be an unremembered episode.
Our common purpose made us all like friends.
How suddenly it ends!
A nod, a murmur, or a little smile,
Or often nothing, and away we file.
I hate to leave you, comrades. I will stay
To watch you drift apart and pass away.
It seems impossible to go and meet
All those strange eyes of people in the street.
But, like some proud unconsious god, the train
Gathers us up and scatters us again.’

    Really cool image…it draws you right in. Your title is great too…I’m sure it comes from somewhere…and I imagine the passing of the train and the scattering of leaves. A picture that makes you think is always a good one. :)

  • The title comes from the writing i posted underneath the photo! :) Thank you so much for your comments. I really aprreciate them. So glad you like the image! xx
