Please don’t tell my wife,

Who knows my love of toys rife…

A 2-6-0h

I’ve purchased so,

I’ll be set the rest of my life!


A 2-8-0h I bought,

A wonderful engine, had not…

Couplers easily

Used in switching duty,

Bought adapters, but that’s as far as I got.

The eyesight is getting so bad,

To stay in N scale, I’ve had…

To rethink goals

And simplify, I suppose,

What I’ve chosen to have.

Will I REALLY be able,

To install a custom turntable…

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
