Up from the Cape
Where the wild seas thunder
Over the Falls, where a haze of spray
Keeps the North and the South asunder
Swings she swift on her headlong way
Speeding tireless, night and day
Past the Lakes in their magic chain
Waking the Desert to wide-eyed wonder
Racketing, rocketing, roars the train.

Henry Cullen Goldsbury
"Rhodes' Dream"

Class 19D, Knysna, South Africa 2004 (WS)
