Missing, is one of the basic subjects of folk song. In the "Kara Tren Gecikir-Black Train is Delayed" folk song, missing is accompanied by anxiety, fear, grief, impatience, and uneasiness. The eye of the lover is on the way and full of tears. The heart of lover is feel bored and full of worry. The reason for all of this is the train of coming late. Delay in the time of the train is the main element of the literary tension. Most of the indications in the poet are; to waiting for someone to come, to tear your heart out, to swing, to not come, to forget, and so on all of them are time-related and are postings to delay the train in context. The rate of the delay is expressed by the sentence which “You gave the train, (letter) you forget the state.”Besides, the "land train" symbol is a symbol of slowness and delay in popular opinion. A train in folk song is an object that forms indirect or direct poetry. The ambiguity about the timing of the train and the time of the delay wakes up the curiosity. Again, the train contributes to the formation of literary tension in the text, due to lingering and delay. Besides, it is expected that between lover and beloved, bringing a letter and taking it, that is, carrying out communication, will be an aid element. This creates a strengthening influence on the poetic and literary direction of folk song. In literary texts, an artist does not acquire an idea or feeling, pure, ordinary, and ordinary. It works, transforms and presents it differently. The artist did not process a simple sense of missing and relate emotion to the delay of the train. The artist reflects the state of extreme grief, intolerance, uneasiness, and impatience in addition to the missing in the subject (in love), and the missing transforms into a feeling other than the usual. In other words, the artist has given him an aesthetic identity by passing the emotion through the art wind, and carried the poem to the literary level. Therefore, literature can be said to have started with a late train.
