Waiting to cross the border

Waiting to cross the border - Trains of thought


Thousands are still asleep
Dreaming of terrifying monsters,
Or of friendly tea beside the band at Cranston's or Crawford's:
Asleep in working Glasgow, asleep in well-set Edinburgh,
Asleep in granite Aberdeen,
They continue their dreams,
And shall wake soon and long for letters,
And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart,
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?

The crew
In to the Sunset
End of the day II
Ghostly
Ready for the off?
Off the last train
Off the last train
