kings cross station


kings cross station

the beginning and the end of many journeys.
to the remoteness of the glens in winter,
home to mother and to sweetheart from the war,
transfiguration of the countryside by iron and steam.

the drudging daily commute to work and back again.
Where now people’s fantasy becomes reality
and readers can journey with the characters
back to school in the train they dream about.

the meeting of loved ones in expectation.
for some the jouney of their life was ended,
taken by the stair down to their death below
into the raging fire that consumed them all.

the busy shopper loaded down with parcels,
the languid lady waiting for her lover,
the old man who remembers far too much.
now renewed and linked to foreign parts.
