how stately is this covered bridge
with a weathered and worn facade
a winding road that passes through
and a slow stream view as you promenade

now cracked and split with rusted bolts
the price of age to its sturdy beams
reflections on water to catch the eye
where two in love tossed pennies for their dreams

it stands in contrast to the Autumn leaves
a gray aged skin against colors bright
to haunt the memory of days gone by
when it was needed for time's respite

time will pass, this bridge will fall
pictures kept, remind of memories lost
as all things that have come before
through passing years, we'll measure the cost

so lovely. I really want to do a poem too but knowing he likes really different stuff, I may be overthinking the whole thing. Maybe I should just go the scenic route as you so beautifully did.

Frederic, oh my word, I think you just entered a photo of a bridge, very close to my home. I will go take a photo of it and possibly put it in here one day, but it looks like the one. Although, when I upload photos lately, they are not staying showing. I love your poem with this. I will have to save it as another FAV.
