CCC#44: With a Thunderous Roar

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #44

No whispering swishing whimper
No rattling clattering sprinter,
But always a rumbling thundering roar.
That’s our Lord Hinton
on his way from Swindon to Frinton.

    Our trains are the same color scheme, but the yellow is the prominent color. Ooo I do love trains! Clever poetry Crisp! Full of sound effects.

    • I too love trains. We have a single track between Norwich and Yarmouth and along it runs single carriage deisels, electrics and this big beastie, there might be ten or more carriages, or a measly two. It’s not a popular services. Fares escalating, the buses are cheaper and almost as fast. Ho-hum.

    I used to travel by train from Windsor U.and back. We had great fun! A dream trip for me would be to travel VIA across Canada and through the Rockies. A dream lol
    Your poem is perfect. I watched some You tube videos of Lord Hinton. They weren’t too flattering LOL But it certainly has personality 🙂 and a long history. A train to be admired.

  3. Cute poem! Crispina, for some reason your site keeps unsubscribing me??? For some reason I have to keep following you like every other week. Do you have any ideas on how to remedy this? 😀

    This was a fun one, Crispina.
    Having lived next to the track most of my life, the sounds of the train passing has always been a comfort.

  10. Lovely poem, Crispina, and cleverly written. I like the way the poem sounds; as others have said, you’ve captured the rhythm of the train 🙂

    • Thanks, Sammi. I love big powerful engines. When I first moved to this town I used to spend a lot of time down by the harbour’s mouth, watching the ships come in. Enclosed by the warehouses and other buildings, the chug and thrum of their engines was amplified. Anyone would think I was listening to a heavy metal rock band, the way I enthused.
