                            ~  Covered Bridge Autumn Frost  ~
                                                  ~

                       ~ Thin the layer of fog early morn
                        Footsteps, mark the white Autumn frost 
                        Oaken plank boards of the bridge
                        Strength of the hands that built

                       ~Burnished reds, golden wheat to umber brown
                        Awe inspiring the view
                        Covered bridges over streams
                        Pristine clear cold waters rainbow trout or two

                      ~ Autumn's dawning here in this rural farmland
                       Ruby throated hummingbirds have left
                       Geese are gathering, ever so in their nature's v
                       Autumn's frost only colours to cling

                      ~ The covered bridge an image on long country roads
                       To stories of sweethearts "the kissing bridge" I'm told
                       Names of "lovers" carved on the oak
                       Ever in "keepsake" your names if a walk you take 'or

                      ~ Tighten the reins chic chic
                       Horse will clop  and saunter
                       On oaken Covered Bridges
                       Fringed Surrey of a time long ago

I must admit that I would prefer those (a long time ago) times you so delicately share here, Lady Mary Ann, to the harried, noisy, polluted world we live in. Thankfully there are still places a soul can escape to that personify the peace and beauty that your write so aptly invokes. This work conveys to me the spirit of a time when there was the fragrance of honor and romanticism wafting through hearts and spirits. Alas. A gentle spirit wrote these peaceful words that flow as a pure stream. A delight to read. Peace and blessings to you... richard

Your words are a wonderful complement to the picture, Mary Ann. You have captured time, place and tone perfectly. xx
Reviewed by Joy Hale 11/2/2011
I have not seen many covered bridges, but if your beautiful picture and descriptive words are an example, I will rush out to find one. I got a feeling of olden days; a cool, crisp autumn with a layer of new frost, lap rugs to keep one warm and a knitted muff to fend off the cold. Just lovely, Mary Ann. Thanks for bringing me back in time!

I love rural autumns. Crisp air and colors to behold. This has a marvelous Norman Rockwell feel to it. Patrick

A lovely ode to the old Covered Bridges, and I always stop to admire them whenever I travel old country roads.

Enchanting poetry, Mary Ann...there are many covered bridges here in New Brunswick, Canada, and every one of them has a story...your phrasing is beautiful!

This poetry has the romance of the past
coupled with the poet's vision of now..
images are gentle, appropriate and warming
to the spirit and to the senses.
Yes, Mary Ann!
