The Train

Did you ever listen to the sound of lonely trains?
One of them passed by here at quarter after 10.
The conductor pulled the cord and then
a lonely whistle blew.
It filled the air with sadness,
doom and haunting gloom.


If you stopped to listen,
You could feel its hurt and pain,
But only for a moment - it wont pass this way again.

O Death, you may come speedily
Like the lonely train,
But only for a fleeting, you know you must not stay.
For the train is headed heavenward, the loneliness is gone,
No more pain and sorrow,
Her train is homeward bound.

O death, where is thy sting; o grave
Where is thy victory?
