School Days Are Over
This is an entry in "Word Pictures Contest

See the future
in our work
school days over and behind
Irish strength and muscle pulling, always pulling to the West

See the past
where we've been
Matters not, it's from the East
Fortitude and courage needed, needed here and needed now

Hear the never ending clicks
of horizon's train upon the tracks
we will build a way to see life
Vision is behind us, behind us all the way rushing into the past

Hear our grandchildren playing daily?
Know our work upon these rails?
Will our children's children see us?
Faith falls forward into the future arms of time, never stopping, always moving, moving, moving...
