Ghost Train!

A lone car had to stop at the rail crossing

as the heavy gates closed

bells rang and lights flashed on and off

she sat waiting to get home

in the distance down the single track

it passed a rail side shack!

 

Anxiously thinking why such a long wait

then Annie felt the vibrations

her daughter Ella cried in her car seat

as a dark shape approached

speeding by them like an old express train

from screaming could not refrain!

 

Ella was silent they were both mesmerised

the barriers stayed down

then the scheduled train trundled through

what had they just seen

barriers now rose how glad to move on

in her mind the image strong!

 

Annie was certain they had seen a ghost train

determined to find out more and come again!
