Al Winans: Remembering RFK

Photo of Robert Kennedy and I taken at his Senate Office in 1966. A short poem.


The funeral train passes by carrying...
His body


A sea of faces stretched out
As far as the eye can see
waving, openly weeping


Sparks fly from heated rails
Clickity-clack, clickity-clack
Sings its sad song along
The railway track


A solemn brother stands alone
At the back of the caboose
Lost in deep thought


Clickity-clack, clickity-clack
Sings its sad song along
The railroad track


Al Winans
