BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER ! ANGELA & BRIAN ~ A PANTOUM



 

WHENEVER WE SEE A BRIDGE ~ WE ALWAYS HAVE TO CROSS IT !

 

BRIDGES !  Human engineering make

To overcome an obstacle ~ such as Ravine 

A River ~ Rail track or a Lake

To get you to the other side ~ they*re in between !

 

To overcome an obstacle ~ such as Ravine

One needs a BRIDGE ~ permanent or swing

To get you to the other side ~ they*re in between

YES ~ one should be prepared to BRIDGE each thing !

 

One needs a BRIDGE ~ permanent or swing

Especially when some People are in Danger

YES ~ one should be prepared to bridge each thing

Would YOU be a Human Bridge to help a STRANGER ?

 

Especially when some People are in Danger

Could you be *A BRIDGE over their Troubled Water* ?

Would you be a Human Bridge to help a STRANGER ?

Just as one would help one*s  SON or DAUGHTER !

 

Could you be *A BRIDGE over their Troubled Water* ?

A River ~ Rail track or a Lake

Just as one would help one*s SON or DAUGHTER

BRIDGES !  Human engineering make !

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก 

 

A PANTOUM is a Classical Poetic structure which uses REPETITION.

In VERSE TWO the SECOND & FOURTH lines of VERSE ONE become 

the FIRST & THIRD lines of VERSE TWO. This pattern repeats until

You decide to finish  the POEM !  In the FINAL VERSE lines ONE &

THREE are lines TWO & FOUR from the PENULTIMATE VERSE ~ OK

However LINE TWO is the THIRD VERSE from VERSE ONE and LINE

FOUR is LINE ONE from VERSE ONE ~ OK. This devious ploy ensures

ALL lines are repeated once and that the PANTOUM (always written

           in QUATRAINS) begins & ends ~ With the same LINE ~ A & B ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

    A fine write B&A. Oohh I'm all jittery with some bridges if I can see the water or ground beneath. I don't even like downwards escalators. I feel I will fall.
    Some (bricks and mortar) bridges I do not cross even when I have got to them. I do long detours. Doh!

      A fine and meaningful pantoum which gets all readers asking themselves questions - bridging a troubled time of a needy person can be so worthwhile - - - a lovely and loving write dear duo.

            Fine work - fine form.

              THANKS UNCLE MIKE ~ Pleased you enjoyed it. I like repetition in Poetry and Pantoums are relativelly easy to control ! I changed from ACTUAL BRIDGES to Personal ones half way through ~ but it read and ended well ~ even where we had to refer back to VERSE ONE !

              Blessings to You and Yours
              Yours ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™

                Bridges can be found throughout our lives and many are built between the minds and souls of each other.

                Bridge Over Troubled Water is one of the songs that our Choir sing.,

                  Thanks UNCLE ANDY : ANGELA HERE (its 9pm Tuesday : just catching up on MPS !) BRIAN is at Work so I am posting our Poem on WATERFALLS ideal subject for your Weather : BRIAN tells me it will reach 100F in the South east this week ! Its the middle of Winter in NZ but a cool 14C = 57F here ! We all need to REACH OUT to People and they will reach our to US and form a BRIDGE of LOVE. In my JOB I am a BRIDGE to painlessness and increased MOBILITY and BRIAN is a BRIDGE to increased knowledge & understanding of their chosen PROFESSION. We both try to make the World a better place ! As you do with your SINGING and beiing a BRIDGE (24/7 SUPPORT) for your Beloved Wife JOYCE. We all *PLAY BRIDGE !* BRIAN & I sang BOTW when we formed a CHOIR on a Meditteranian Cruise : AWESOME !
