As we sip our tea.

I stand on the bridge over the railway line

As you let off steam outside the station.

It's evening, the time when the light from your headlamp

And the steam from your valves meet in an intricate dance.

Your dulcet whistle provides the music,

And the wind carries it to your waiting audience.

Lonely at birth and lonelier now.

Born so long after your sisters and brothers,

And not quite by the same design.

But spoiled Amelia won't listen to direction.

And all the Whos down in scenery

Might need a Grinch to speed them up.

Maybe Santa will bring me costumes,

Since no one seems to care.
