Travelling West

by Jem Croucher

It’s dark outside, this early hour
the night is not yet done
Yet I’ve been up for quite some time
For me the morning’s come

Ahead for several hours
a journey beckons me
Travelling down to Cardiff
from Sussex by the sea

It’ll take me seven hours by train
via London first, quite slow
Then cross country down into the West
from Paddington I’ll go

  1. What a lovely verse but what a small world we live in –
    Go on a little further
    And that’s where you’ll find me
    Where the beach and waters call
    In the town of Swansea

  2. Nice blog! By the way I’m new here in wordpress, please help visit and follow my site and if you have time, appreciate if you will read my posts as well. Thank you so much! 🙂
