Midnight Train



A bold intrusion has prevailed                                                                    
Where branches bend, and night-birds nest 
The starry night has been impaled  

A bold intrusion has prevailed 
The starry night has been impaled  
Against the sky where moonlight crests 

A bold intrusion, has prevailed 
Where branches bend, and night-birds nest 


~ 
A silver chain is southward bound   
Where weary creatures rest at ease,   
but scatter now, upon the sound.   

A silver chain is southward bound  
And clouds of dust, rise off the ground,  
This flash of light-speed stirs the leaves  
 
A silver streak is southward bound  
where weary creatures rest at ease

    I once lived by the trackYard....I know a few things there of, /this also reminded me of The Great Movie...'Silver Streak'...Jill Clayburg...and the villain...Patrick Mcgoohan now gone... from the series 'Secret Agent.'...i remember my first train ride. Got in an empty car...and jostled about for an hour....ended up 4 tracks above where i started. Was hoping to go to Sante Fe...said on the side "Sante Fe Line" had 3 tortillas and an old thermos ...for the journey...was 9.

    Can't help but think of Gladys Knight's song "Midnight train to Georgia" as I read this. This was a gorgeous setting that you created here.
