Poem of the Week: Train Station

Train Station

Train Station

Imagine a small red brick train station

On dual tracks of the Southern line

Mansard-roof, red clay tiles

Waiting room, luggage room, ticket office.

Go sit on one of the green-painted benches

On the platform

Listen to the rain and

Wait. Wait patiently if need be and

When this poem pulls in

Climb aboard.

–DanĀ  Verner
