The Blue Train

The train leaves, the way
blue enters into green
wagons are horseless,
the whistle blows in threes.

The day is calm,
and trees hide bees,
the tunes you hear have rhythm
in their wings.

It's a footstep day
to museum, gold and trams
a horse stands
aside purple ropes,
the whistle blows again.

It's turtle slow
a second clattery ride
an engine pulling blue
with nowhere to hide.
