He stood on the edge of a new world, waiting for the train
That would carry him away from his familiar nest
He felt a storm of emotions in his brain
As he dreamed of his future and his quest

A stranger came and lit a spark of conversation
He asked him if he'd ever flown the coop
He said he'd spread his wings in the nation
But never on a train or in a group

The stranger asked him if he felt elated
Or anxious for the journey he would make
He said he was elated, but he faked
He felt a thorn of fear he couldn't shake

He wondered what would blossom on the way
What colors and fragrances and people he would greet
He hoped that he would find a place to play
And make some friends and have some cake and sweet

He boarded the train with his luggage
He waved goodbye to the stranger and his town
He looked ahead with a hopeful visage
He was ready for adventure, up or down
