Villanelle Age of Steam

I would love to live in the age of steam  
so grandly elegant with its great grace
tis such a romantic place where I dream,
Those ships and engines with brasses a'gleam  
Besler's steam airplane flew! Gas? In your face!
I would love to live in the age of steam.
The Golden Arrow the African Queen  
they've such lovely lyrical names in place  
tis such a romantic place for my dreams,  
Stanley's Steamer car ran ever so clean  
there wasn't so much hurry or much haste  
I would love to live in the age of steam.
Such devine colour schemes, green, red and cream  
not like today's they are so drab and base  
such a romantic place to place my dream,  
Diamond in my tooth gives an expensive sheen  
and keeps the unwashed hoi-polloi away,  
then for sure I'd live in the age of steam  
this, so romantic age, in which I dream.
