Waiting at the station for the next train
a group of people are stood chatting.
Some are on their mobiles
and some holding brollies in the rain.
What do they gain?
They may stay dry of course
apart from their legs.
When it is time to board
the people collapse their brollies.
And dry the clothes later hanging on a line with pegs.
The train pulls in and halts.
The driver puts on the brakes.
It will be a fun journey
going by the lakes.
And back again – what is at stake?
But noteworthy trips make good diary entries.
The people choose their seats.
Then the people choose an activity
as the wheels turn.
Is it a steam train where the coal burns?
The train goes along the tracks
to it’s final destination.
The people get off the train
ready to go on it yet again.
