Beneath Wrought Iron Ribs.

Beneath wrought iron ribs, Central Station

resounds with arrival, with departure.

The arch of her lip, her wrist, her notation;

these words mark a nascent adventure.

Resounds with arrival, with departure

announcement – Newcastle, Durham, Carlisle.

These words mark a nascent adventure –

candle, cathedral, centurion – beguile.

Announcement – Newcastle, Durham, Carlisle.

Above ancient stone ribs, bells rhyme –

candle, cathedral, centurion – beguile.

The clocks and the candles appeal time.

Above ancient stone ribs, bells rhyme,

the air rings with a sense of precession!

The clocks and the candles appeal time

beneath wrought-iron ribs, Central Station.
