rsl - FROM THE RAILWAY CARRIAGE (Robert Louis Stevenson)
Robert Louis Stevenson

Faster than fairies than witches,

Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;

And charging along like troops in a battle

All through the meadows the horses and cattle;

All of the sights of the hill and the plain
Fly as thick as driveinng rain;
And ever again, in the wink of an eye,
painted station whistle by.

Here is a child who clambers and scrambles,
All by himself and gathering brambles,

Here is a tramp who stands and gazes;

And here is the green for stringing the daisies!

Here is a cart run away in the road

Lumping along with man and load;

And here is mill,and there is a river:

Each a glimpse and gone for ever!
