The Train Ride – Barry Bayon

The Train Ride

By Barry Bayon

Station gleaming,
Platform teeming,
Riders streaming,
Train bell ringing.

Brakes bleeding,
Train proceeding,
Speed increasing,
Sights fleeting.

Passengers texting
Conductor ticketing
Children fidgeting
Scenery soliciting

Train slowing,
Station approaching,
Bags collecting,
Passengers expecting.

Brakes screeching.
Destination reaching.
Passengers meeting,
Friends greeting.
