Last Night

The midnight train
can't keep time,
it howled at 1 a.m.
My sleeping dream
followed it South
towards the California line
and met the Spring,
coming North, so soft
    and sweet and warm.

  2. I'd remember that dream too. It's one of those dreams I'd rather have in color, but the excitement gets me even in black and white. And yes, sometimes my dreams are in B&W!

  6. I hope that train travels all across the country and drops off spring everywhere that it is still snowing! I enjoyed this, Lorna.
