A whistle, a puff of steam and a smile

IMGP9860

Sitting in the sunshine
with a welcome cup of tea
I heard a far off whistle
echoing ‘cross the green valley
And there, across the fields
with a puff of whitened steam
a train left Bodiam station
trundling through the Sussex green

It was a lovely picture
and with my camera close at hand
I made certain that I captured
it’s journey through the land
We watched it as it trundled
disappearing in a while
on its way to Tenterden
leaving us a smile.

Bodiam station was closed back in 1961 but re-opened in 2000 to become part of the Kent and East Sussex Heritage Railway. The ten-mile stretch of line runs between Tenterden in Kent and Bodiam.
