A Train's Night Journey(Repost)

In urged haste it gluts its obese crowding
Kicking out its first breath whistles its drag
Slow huffs-puffs to tadak-tadaks speeding
Runs on rails with modesty of its brag
Oscillating bogies on fear-brooding
Of a lurking colleague in crossing lag
While benighted green breeze takes to refuge
In sleeping minds of varied colours huge

Going thus the train with pause then and there
A maze of moon glitters along its way
Passing midnight in somewhat gloomy mare
A cautious force tows the train fast right way
Cheered tadak-tadaks, tadak-tadaks flare
When rouged sky streaks an arc of a heyday
Dawning minds breathe in breezing greens' rebirth
While the halting train kicks out its last breath

I felt as if I have been a traveller in that train of 'oscillating bogies' all through its journey until it halted with its 'last breath'! Great write!
