The Railway (Verse)

Modern Verse For The Railway
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Vertically they have gone to see the horizon
dividing into two parallel paths of iron and stone
nor to return or to encounter
sometimes, only crease cross
to pass trains and trams with passengers and goods
ever absurd they are;

On both the sides
modern civilization exists
mills, factories, industries, markets and localities are
in high rising skyscrapers, fashionable, colorful buildings
lines after lines vertically, horizontally
and underwardly growers they are;

Here and there wide and long hollow down bridges
over ponds, lakes, channels, rivers even seas
where ply boats, launches all the times,
sometimes, go through long tunnel,
again through hills, desert and channel
challenging explorers they are;

I have walked for long and long, faced long quarry
only iron and stone all through the journey
no pearls, diamond or ivory,
i have heard fierce, painful crying
but seen no tiger or lion roaring
absurd history makers they are;

I have seen cutting, burning, clearing forests
filling lakes, dishes, rivers,
leveling hills, killing wilds
for paving the paths of iron and stone,
for ever growing silver civilization
innumerable stations setters they are.

This poem is a strong criticism of the modern world, .. I have seen cutting, burning, clearing forests filling lakes, dishes, rivers, leveling hills, killing wilds for paving the paths of iron and stone, for ever growing silver civilization

It’s a great poem! Wonderful poetic expression carrying substantial details behind “The Railway”: “I have seen cutting, burning, clearing forests filling lakes, dishes, rivers, leveling hills, killing wilds”….Then, “…modern civilization exists mills, factories, industries”. In final stanza you have expressed your deep concern: “I have seen cutting, burning, clearing forests/filling lakes, dishes, rivers..” Absolutely brilliant! Thanks for sharing
