Something there is that does love a bridge

Something there is that does love a bridge

The Pittsburgh Bridges galleries from the past two days have evoked a tremendous response from blog viewers. The views today add more weather and some are taken from the river while on the Ducky Tour or the wedding below.

Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress really unleashed so many of the BRIDGE photos I’ve taken.   And finding so many images with bridges makes me realize I have taken bridges for granted.

And my friend V is right about the photos- people respond to the the bridge structures, NOT the sunsets taken from a bridge.

Poem in Your Pocket Day – April 30th

My sister wrote to remind me that April 30th (tomorrow) is Poem in Your Pocket Day.

Don’t have a poem?

You can download one from the American Academy of Poets site right here

When I taught in a K-8 school, I had a basket of poems for the office counter with a sign, TAKE ONE.

I read a poem a day over the PA for the K-2 morning announcements for the month of April, National Poetry Month.

Sometimes the poem taker would put back the poem they selected in search of one that spoke to them.

Tonight I printed out The Pasture by Robert Frost. Put it in my denim blazer pocket.

When I was in the third grade (1960) I had to memorize and recite it at the end of the year “stepping up” ceremony.

Mary is going to have one of our mother’s favorite- Walt Whitman’s Elegy- When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloomed

What poem will you have in your pocket to read and share?

Two Roads Diverged on a City Hill

Two roads diverged on a city hill.

I really wasn’t sorry I could not take either of them.

No outlet, squared.

I sighed.

And when the light turned green,

I headed on over the bridge at the bottom of the hill instead of choosing.

 

Apologies to Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

 —Robert Frost

Fire and Ice. Well, a candle and some cubes. Contrast.
