Hi all! I was going through some old papers of mine (getting ready for college, you know), and I found a bunch of old poems that I thought I’d share with you! This first one’s called The Cargo Train, and it was written two years ago for an English assignment. I think it was supposed to be the unit on A Midsummer Night’s Dream and rhyming couplets. Hope you like it!
The Cargo Train
Down in the pass where the graces don’t go
A weak, one-way bridge lies, near crushed by snow
When he, shadow of dark, draws near, he aims
To take his prize, drink deep, collect his claims
And there, a lavish Train runs off its rails
Crying out to the night with awful wails
Quick sparks spring swift, closing precious light’s gate
Black coal burning within reflects their fate
He laughs, “Rose cheeks, naïve, so defiant!
Shrill, vain, and greedy now become silent.”
