IN THE TRAIN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Suddenly from a wayside station
Last Line: Her, he loves the heart of england?
Subject(s): England; Railroads; English; Railways; Trains

Suddenly from a wayside station,
In she comes, -- a little satchelled
Country schoolgirl,
Jocund as a field of cowslips. . .

Looking hard, I think, How goodly
Must have been the stock that bore her . . .
Down the distant
Georgian days and Jacobean,

What a line of comely maidens,
Bending to avoid the tangled
Flitted from their fathers' homestead,

Happy-eyed, to wander courting
Through the sunset-lighted meadows:
What upstanding
Sons and sires, have wooed and won them . . .

When she ripens, who shall wed her?
Will he know, I wonder? Will he
Know that, loving
Her, he loves the heart of England?
