From A Railway Carriage


Faster than fairies, faster than witches,

Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;

And charging along like troops in a

All through the meadows the horses and cattle:

All of the sights of the hill and the

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 here is the green for stringing the daisies!

Here is a cart runaway in the

Lumping along with man and load;

And here is a mill, and there is a river:

Each a glimpse and gone forever!

This poem is similar in many ways to Auden's
