The Abandoned Railroad

The Abandoned Railroad

By Elton Camp

Its wooden ties are in a state of decay
The rail bed is partly washed away

Nature slowly but surely will reclaim
Then once again all will be the same

Though the rails alone for decades last
Testimony that a train formerly passed

Surveyors and laborers worked in vain
Why it was put there, none can explain

For those who built it no longer are alive
The works of man so seldom long survive

So it has been through the ages of history
Both people & their works lost in mystery
