To the El

In Memoriam

By Gerald Spindel

The Magpie, January 1941, v. 25, n. 1, p. 41.

Aye, tear her tattered pillars down,
Long has she run on high,
And many a lad has run to catch
That railroad in the sky!
Her din above the noise of all.
Above the traffic's roar,
The chariot of the gleaming rails
Shall shake the sky no more.
