The Old Bridge

RCP11jun16-9324

The old bridge, strong for over a hundred years.
The tales it could tell.
Of the babbling brook that flows beneath
or of the footsteps that walked above.

This bridge, of man-sized stones tightly bound.
Even Mother Nature with her attempts,
blizzards, earthquakes, heavy rains. The bridge remains

Presidents and dignitaries have enjoyed the cool waters of the river.
Children laughing while crossing and lovers kissing on the bridge.
The bridge being a part of their lives.

The Old bridge
Eternally alive
Guiding and leading through the walk of life.
