Railway Lines for Music. If whirling along, we want a song, A railway ride to cheer, "(..1 Many a theme besides the steam Will fit for a rhyme appear. We might chant a stave on the roaring knave, And the ding-dong-bell he'll ring, But his bawling out is a ceaseless shout, Of "urn," "ber," "by," or "ing." So let's sing for Fun of the wandering one* All railway landscapes yield, That dreary man with his terrier tan, Seen always crossing a field. The sparrow may seek to sharpen his beak On the perch of the telegraph wire, But he nothing can know of what flashes below, And the knowledge he doesn't desire.. The oows and the sheep their counsel keep, As the train goes puffing along, And there's little to state of the boy on the gate. In sentiment fit for a song! > But certainly be must a hero be, With some mystery uBreveaied- That dreary man with a terrier tan, Who is always crossing A. field.
