Poetry In (Loco)Motion


I wrote this on a train
It was poetry in motion
The train was running late
Which filled me with emotion

The emotion, though, was joy
For I was late as well
My tardiness well-timed
I didn’t have to dwell

Better still, I got a seat
An unexpected perk
As I headed to my course
And an afternoon off work

I didn’t hold much hope
That my course would not be dull
But at least the journey there
Was semi-reasonable

So I took out my pen
And wrote this little ditty
While heading at high-speed
On a train into the city

    Useful things, train journeys. I’ll bet that’s how T.S. Eliot and Robert Frost got started.

      I’d imagine you’re right, and of course Kylie Minogue famously did too.

        I smiled when I read it :). Ok I’ll admit it was more of an ear to ear grin, much like the cheshire cat.

    I enjoyed this short poem
    that I’m glad to have read,
    No train trip for me,
    I only moved to couch from bed.
