CRACKS IN THE PAVEMENT

Those cracks in the pavement,
as everyone knows,
must not be stepped on.
Not even a toe should venture to try it.
Don't laugh, it's quite true.
Let me tell you the story of Brian McGrew
who jumped on a crack with an 'I don't care' grin.
At once, the crack opened.
The boy was dragged in by a large scaly hand.
He had time for onr shriek, then vanished entirely.
Gone for a week he was found in Australia,
as mad as a hatter.
So don't say that avoiding the cracks doesn't matter.
Just hop, skip and jump, thats all you need to do,
while remembering the story of Brian MacGrew.

Faster than Fairies

FROM A RAILWAY CARRIAGE
Robert Louis Stevenson


Faster than fairies, faster than witches,
Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches ;
And charging along like troops in a battle,
All throughh the meadows the horses and cattle.
All of the sights of the hill and the plain
Fly as thick as driving rain ;
And ever again, in the wink of an eye,
Painted stations whistle by.
Here is a child who clambers and scrambles,
All by himself and gathering brambles ;
Here is a tramp who stands and gazes ;
And there is the green  for stringing the daisies !
Here is a cart run away in the road
Lumping along with man and load;
And here is a mill and there is a river :
Each a glimpse and gone for ever.

THE NIGHT EXPRESS

Out in the blackness a globe of fire ;
          Out of the silence a clank and roar ;
          Out of the restfulness, dead before,
 A mad rush, monstrous in strength and ire :
A spangle of sparks on night's dark dress ;
                 A tempest of cinders, whirlwind tossed ;
 An echo dying - in distance lost ;
Thus comes and passes the Night Express
diddilydeedotsdreamland .


The Earthern Pot and the Iron Pot
The Iron Pot made a suggestion
to the Earthen Pot - an excursion!

The latter declined,
for he must mind the hearth, and further, he went
on, the slightest accident
like falls or hits
and he'd come home in bits.
"But you," he said of tougher skin,
"needn't feel held in."
"I'll be you're body guard,
should you knock into something hard."
Replied the other. "Being tougher
I'll come between and be a buffer."
So reasurred the earthen pot agreed
he would go where chance might lead
and side by stride they strode
on their three-legged way along the road.

Needless to say, within a hundred paces
jostling in the path's uneven places
the earthen pot soon felt his friend
lurch into him and, battered
more than once, he shattered.
He had no reason to complain.
It's obvious that, in the main,
we should keep with our own kind
or like him, suffer an unhappy end.

Choo, choo went the train,
Splish, splash through the rain.
Clickity clack down the track,
Going there, coming back.

Barmouth to Fairbourne
 THE RAILWAY TRAIN

I like to see it lap the miles,
    And lick the valleys up,
And stop to feed itself at tanks;
    And then. prodigious, step
Fairbourne to Barmouth
Around a pile of mountains,
    And, supercilious, peer
In shanties by the sides of roads;
    And then a quarry pare
To fit its sides, and crawl between,
    Complaining all the while
In horrid, hooting stanza;Train going to China
    Then chase itself downhill;

And neigh like Boanerges;
    Then, punctual as a star,

Stop ~ docile and omnipotent ~
    At its own stable doors.



A Steam train in Llangollen, North Wales.
This little poem was written by Emily Dickinson,
She describes the sounds and behaviour of the train
in the mountainous districts as it runs along the lines.
It is one of those strange poems that never rhyme.

The Lost Lunch

Bob didn't wast a minute,                                He took a third class ticket,
A taxi cab he called,                                             But had some time to wait,
The hampers with the lunch and tea       So sat upon the lunch and tea
Into the cab he hauled.                                    As if enthroned in state.
"Drive to the station!" to the man               But in the end, with smiling face
He said, "As quickly as you can."                He safely reached the picnic place.

His people were delighted,
They cheered till they were hoarse.
Mamma was glad; "her little lad
must stay," she said, "of course."
The hero of the day was he
And had a splendid lunch and tea.

Flat Stanley in Llangollen on Sunday
Hello this is me, Flat Stanley again. Just thought I would set you a little quiz about Thomas the Tank Engine. I am sure you will all be able to do it. I found it in the carriage on the Heritage Train we went on. It's rather fun. I thought you might like to see the longest railway station name in Wales, isn't it fantastic. I bet you don't know what it means?
Neither do I, Diddily wouldn't tell me, she said to look it up when I get back home to Kent and Ben.

Down by the station early in the morning,

See the little puffer bellies all in a row.

See the engine driver pull the little throttle:

Puff, puff, Toot! Toot! Off we go!
