Train to Milwaukee

Go placidly into the February afternoon
and know 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
evening 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.
