Train to Milwaukee

Go placidly into the December afternoon
and know that the journey is good.
The gray of approaching evening sky
offers comfort to a day well spent.
No battles worth the time to fight, no
villains given a second glance, no gossip of
interest to turn the ear.     Only this
afternoon to watch go by.     Only this
moment to put my head back as the train
to Milwaukee brings me closer to my loves.
Their home is near and my future is warm
in the light of that moment which has become
this moment by and by.
