IN A RAILROAD STATION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: We stood in the shrill electric light
Last Line: My tears were hidden in my heart.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Absence; Separation; Isolation


WE stood in the shrill electric light,
Dumb and sick in the whirling din
We who had all of love to say
And a single second to say it in.

"Good-by!" "Good-by!"--you turned to go,
I felt the train's slow heavy start,
You thought to see me cry, but oh
My tears were hidden in my heart.
