loco-motion

A poem to read aloud to a child 🙂  Kudos to my son who is a train engineer!  (Linking to dVerse Poetics  prompt “Wheels of Steel” with Bjorn)

 

jumping on

going, gone

 

faster, faster

 

pacing a train

racing in vain

 

faster, faster

 

wheels turning

diesel burning

 

faster, faster

 

graffitied cars

glowing stars

 

faster, faster

 

vision at night

one-eyed light

 

faster, faster

 

hugging its track

never look back

 

faster, faster, clickety-clack!

    Oh, yes. The rhythm of this is PERFECT for a train piece. I agree, it would make a great children’s book.

    I was reading it out aloud Lynn ~ What fun this is to read to a child or anyone with a child’s heart ~
