The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

The river runs from west to east
roads south to north
from bank to bank three bridges span
three centuries worth
before these the fly-boat Brae
led down to its ferry
near the ghost-line of the Roman way
on the outward journey
Salmon sandstone pillars rise
above Leaderfoot
the meeting of two singing streams
by leafy Ravenswood
builders pay attention to the piers
so the arch can spring
taking you far from what you see
to what you're not yet seeing
for when the Tweed is running high
from wintry moor and moss
old Drygrange Bridge is standing here
to carry you across

I'm glad that I didn't find this until now. It means so much more to me now than it would have then.
,..miss you and hope all is well with you and yours.
