Quatrain about Trains with Meter!

Poetry Contest

Write a quatrain about trains. It can be literal or metaphorical, but you want to capture the essence of a train for your reader. Its sounds, feel, smell, etc?

As always, no pictures

For this particular poem you are limited to four lines, with a meter, but the rhyme is up to you, but you must be able to describe it for your reader in the notes. For example, an iambic pentameter (often used for sonnets) written in abab. Or perhaps you want to write a dactylic hexameter with abba format?

In summary:

Theme: trains
Length: Four lines exactly
Notes: Must tell us in the author notes what rhyme scheme and meter that you used.
