  • The Vineyard Train
    by Michelle M. Mead

    We passed by the vineyard
    On our way to the coast
    And the train played its music
    Of low rumblings and ghosts

    For out of the window was seen
    This place of otherworldly bliss
    And the vine-covered arbors
    Where old fairies reminiscence

    And the train carried more
    Than passengers and scenes
    It carried relics and spells
    Played out in strange dreams

    And the mountains remembered
    Like the fields of spun gold
    That the trains carried magic
    And those stories once told.

    Michelle M. Mead is a writer from the Hudson Valley in New York. She Co-Edits a local children’s magazine called WHIMSY for which she writes poetry, book reviews and author/illustrator interviews. She has been published in various ezines (most recently, THE CLOCKWISE CAT, Issue 8), as well as in the print publication SONGS OF INNOCENCE (AND EXPERIENCE) and her chapbook MOONGIRLS AND NIGHTDREAMS.
