The future of these signals
Time for the tracks to change
Underground for a subway
How I have this idea.
To see the rails
Connected to the Ballarat airport
Time for us to grow
Just like Melbourne town.
The train will move fast
Sometimes, there will be steam trains
Giving children a ride
The weathering future will be underground subways.
Listen to Troy’s poem:

Lorraine’s response to Troy’s text:
A positive outlook
Thoughtful and inspiring ideas about planning for links for our past, with our future. This encapsulated the message in my art work.
