Listen to Stevensons poem From a railway carriagehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jCoigg77Y4
From a railway carriage By Louis Stevenson(1850 1894)Faster than fairies, faster than witches,Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;And charging along like troops in a battle,All through the meadows the horses and cattle:All of the sights of the hill and the plainFly as thick as driving rain;And ever again, in the wink of an eye,Painted stations whistle by.Here is a child who clambers and scrambles,All by himself and gathering brambles;Here is a tramp who stands and gazes;And there is the green for stringing the daisies!Here is a cart run away in the roadLumping along with man and load;And here is a mill and there is a river:Each a glimpse and gone forever!
Many ways to travel by Tony MittonThere are may ways to travelAnd one that I likeIs to zoom down a hillOn a mountain bikeThere are many ways to travelAnd another that is nice is to slide on a sledgeOn the snow and iceThere are may ways to travelAnd isn’t it funTo sail on the seaIn the wind and sun?There are many ways to travelBut the best by farIs to ride on a rocketTo a distant star.
