the track lies still
glimmering from use
with standing all weather
they connect places
across continents
carrying various items
gifts, freight, and people
time was determined
by their passing
of locomotives
rolling their lines
guiding their way
forever remaining
even as the skies
filled with aircraft
emulating their movements
their importance
as a railroad highway
impacts our business today
and our relationships
of tomorrow
