Back in the Day...


THE COVERED BRIDGE
"At rest, at last, in shaded woods,
Wild ivy climbs its beams.

Its memories only shared by God
And one undying stream.

Whose hooves have trod these ancient planks?
What mystery would they sing?
In raging storm was sheltered here
Beggar, thief, or king?

Not long ago, great artists came,
And poets one by one.
But soon the road was overgrown;
Now even they are gone.

Though now it's only refuge to
Wild ivy, bird, and fawn,
The covered bridge has memories
To cherish from now on!"

For me, old barns, and old bridges are just a few things I love about the country.

Hi Linda:-)

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a lovely comment! I always enjoy meeting new people:-)

I've always had a love for covered bridges but unfortunately they're very rare in my neck of the woods. The only one left in Ontario is the Montrose Covered Bridge (nicknamed Kissing Bridge) and I was lucky enough to go visit it a couple of times now:-) It was worth the 7 hour trip to get to it! lol xox
