THE STEAM-ENGINE: CANTO 7. LESSON FOR THE PROUD, by            
First Line: The scheme is tried, and shall it prosper too?
Last Line: Their own comparative nonentity.
Subject(s): Railroads; Railways; Trains


THE scheme is tried; and shall it prosper too?
Yes; what can't STEAM and gold united do?
Near the commencement of Victoria's reign,
Both SEA-CHIEFS started on th' Atlantic main;
While all the merchantmen they met or pass'd,
Long looks of wonder on the HEROES cast;
Their proud, majestic march, their stately air,
Their god-like prowess, and their length of car,
Made gazers all, with great reluctance, see
Their own comparative nonentity.
