Traveling Through

With shades of white
in wintertime's hue
I found some tracks
just traveling through.
They formed a line
as a path to go
with train tracks seen
in Christmas snow.
Just traveling through
to another place
a seasonal time
with just but a trace.
The tracks had snow
that covered them well
and left just a sign
of a moment's detail.
A train through life
just traveling through
to arrive at Christmas
in a day or two.
It gave a loud whistle
as it scurried along
on down the tracks
with a Christmas song.
Just like a story
from a picture book
it traveled through
with a wintery look.
The tracks came to life
with a magical view
as a Christmas tale
just traveling through.
