THE STATION MAN, ON LOOK-OUT, by                
First Line: All night long
Last Line: Does my sweetheart in san francisco still love me?
Subject(s): Love; Railroads; Railways; Trains

All night long,
The snow-haired wild sea-warriors
Leapt roaring by and fled in tumult,
World-old and raving-mad.

With the first flash of sunlight,
I saw them marching on the vast sea-plain,
Rank after rank,
Steel-clad and glittering men-at-arms.

In the leaping crow's nest,
Ducking the highest plumes of spray,
I clung with both hands, wondering:
Does my Sweetheart in San Francisco still love me?
