The New Zealand Railways Magazine, Volume 11, Issue 11 (February 1, 1937)



A fragile world enow,
Swirling festooned, and colours dip,
Glint on the eye and sharpen to a vow,
Hurt with intensity and slip
Down shadowy slopes. Filmed figures wind their train
Obscurely till the brain
Jerks and asserts the intermittent day,
Holding life flat, poised, hard-lined in its sway.
