"...Sometimes,if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known..."

---Pooh's Little Instruction Book,inspired by A.A. Milne---


I wished for you, silent sentinel of the gap...

No hate, but quiet above the flowing river
   to stand playfully on Free childish imagination

With no care for the world above Bridge so visible
   Now trembling with the weight of its age

Where once laughter and play
   Now mournfulness and beyond

Now I lately learned dying
   The alienation of a few things

Flowing waters below breath-taking skies
   Replaced by the upkeep to downfall
 

Generations left and have gone
   Just go on...brave one

No one to point the way
   Through the dense overgrowth of indifference, clues

You have done much remembered bridge
   work no more, rest in innocent gain.

This reflection has a gentle felt air to it,
Myles, and is filled with tenderness and understanding.

This is my kind of poetry - full of feeling that the author transfers to the reader.

The last line is wonderful.

Peace be with you Myles,
Marcia
