"Twilight of Steam"

‘Twilight of Steam’

Dinosaurs headlight of bright
Seething scary steam delight
Cared for by many nation wide
’Though gone remembered with pride.

Children steam whistle never heard
‘Thomas Tank Engine’ are allured
Union Pacific’s massive ‘Big Boy’
Southern Pacific’s ‘Daylight’ joy.

True in the sense of progress
Such behemoths make no sense..
Porters ghost on platform bare..
Brass buttonned conductors receive no fare..

Dining car with chef prepare
Bare white tabled cloth to no one there
Wisps are there smiling in memory
Inviting those on poetic journey!

Forget worries progress strife
Aboard imaginary escape of ‘life’
Painted ‘Daylight’ sunset colour
Sante Fe ‘Super Cheif’ or other.
