There Is a Last Solitary Coach

David Vogel

There is a last, solitary coach about to leave.

Let us get in and go,

For it won't wait.

I have seen young girls going softly

With sad faces

That looked ashamed and sorry

Like purple sunsets,

 

And chubby, pink children

Who went simply

Because they were called.

 

And I've seen men

Who stepped proud and straight through the world's streets,

Whose large eyes went ranging

Far and wide,

They too got in calmly

And left.

 

And we are the last.

Day is declining.

The last, solitary coach is about to leave.

Let us too get in quietly

And go,

For it won't wait.
