The Bridge O’er The River

Banagher Bridge

Slowly you flow, unobstructed and free,
Slowly ou flow, on down to the sea,
Slowly you flow under this bridge and me…
And I stand alone, observing it all.
Quietly you flow on through the night,
Softly you glisten in the moon pale light
As onward you flow, bending out of sight…
And I stand alone, observing it all.
Pebbles idlely are tossed
By those whose minds it never crossed
To say a prayer for those who were lost
In thy waters far below.
For you, dear river, I know well
Have many a tragic tale to tell.

Have your say...
