Bridge

Indeed, I’ll throw a span or two
across the gap and stream below,
and offer my support to you,
but in the north the blizzard blows.

Remember that the weather rules
and snow can build to mighty weight,
the wind and rain can be so cruel,
till straining timbers meet their fate.

If you’d wish me disaster proof
and safe for all who would use me,
then build me shelter and a roof,
a bridge to warmer climes I’ll be.
