His memories of New England various,

Were by and large vicarious…

Mostly pictures he saw

with interest and awe,

His chances of a visit–hilarious!

Point of fact he was too young,

Couldn’t drive himself even some…

The eight-hour ride

Once a summer left wide,

Window for relevant magazines to come!

Still his interest grew,

Past the time when he knew…

This paint scheme was gone,

these ALCOs moved on.

But the history he wanted to view.

Found an N scale engine thus,

Painted just like this—a plus–

To re-enact

Historical fact,

Without too much fuss!

I like the at-work computer,

With limited possibilities…

One can post and look at blogs there

But with few amenities!

When I want to edit or do major

Rewriting, with that computer I moan…

Need to switch to a newer system,

The laptop I bring from home.

Because of the vagaries of business

I cannot always get on…

Transferring my flag to the laptop

The poetry carries on!
