A Poem on the Website of
the Red Dirt Writers Society

The Allen Bridge
by Larry D. Foreman (about 1986)

Graníma and Gramípa Allenís bridge
Is in a wooded canyon.
On north and south are rolling ridges
Watching oíer the narrow span.

Sometimes the waters swirl beneath
And shout at bases standing firm.
Absorbing hardship, they bequeath
Courageous spirit, bold and stern.

In other season, the river softly flows
Underneath the solid span.
Without a ripple, on it goes,
As part of Heavenís plan.

Sturdy girders tie together
Common lives on facing shores -
One side grass, the other heather,
But joined forever, fast and sure.
