From a railway carriage

In the early morning dark, bleary-eyed daily commuters, heavily scarfed against the biting cold, huddle on the railway platforms waiting to board the fast express to the city.

Words to walk with:
From a Railway Carriage by Robert Louis Stevenson
“Faster than fairies, faster than witches,
Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;
And charging along like troops in a battle
All through the meadows the horses and cattle:
All of the sights of the hill and the plain
Fly as thick as driving rain;
And ever again, in the wink of an eye,
Painted stations whistle by.”
