Not a poem, but a true story of how a brave girl with a lantern
kept a train from being wrecked by a fallen bridge

I read the story quickly, wwh. Thanks for the link.

Now a dumb question (probably answered if I read the story more carefully):

If the bridge had fallen, how was she able to cross it?
