Bridge Builder.

Last Update: January 09, 2020

Hello every one by this you should know that i have a love for poetry .In fact some one much wiser than my self once said that "with, out a love for poetry the richest man is poor" and with that i heartily agree.So here is one of my favorits which i did not write

An old man going a lone high way

Came at Evening cold and gray to

To a chasm deep and wide

With waters rolling on either side


The old man cross inthe twilight dim

The swollen stream had no fears for him

But he turned when safe on the other side

To build a bridge to span the tide


Old man said a fellow pilgrim near,

You are wasting your strenght with building here.

Your journey will end at ending day

You never again will pass this way..

Why build you this bridge at even tide?


The old man lifted his old gray head.

"Good friend in the path i have come",he said

"There followed after me today

A youth whose feet must pass this way "


"That chasm that was naught to me

To that fair haired youth may a pitfall be

He too must cross in the twilight dim,

Good friend I am building this bridge for him'.
