Rest, Relax and Enjoy

Oh Little Bridge. [poem and song]

Friday 17th July 2015

scribbler 2  The song included is by a friend, whose name is John Dunkinson, who currently resides in or near Everett, Seattle. He liked these words so much he asked if he could make them into a song and this is the result. Hope you all enjoy it I personally love it because it conjors up that atmosphere of the village and how I saw it when I wrote this

  3. Gerry, this is terrific. I’m so glad your friend set this to music. I do have one question, though. I had a hard time understanding the words in the line right after, “My decision was not rash.” Since he added that line and the one right after it, I didn’t have the words in the poem to double-check with. I thought I got what he said, but then I wasn’t sure. What were the words of that very next line?

    Congratulations on such a fine use of your poem. I hope he does some with other poems you’ve written.

    • ‘I decided to paddle through the splash’ are the words you require. John added a few more lines for the music side, he did ask. The bridge in the picture is my famous watersplash bridge. I have done several posts with it being the star…it was this bridge that inspired me…until they upgraded it. Sandra thank you very much…

      • Okay. That’s what I thought he was saying, but I wanted to ask to be sure. I love it. And thanks.

  5. I’ve just worked out there’s music to listen to. My blocker had blocked it, but I was able to unblock it! How great for you to have your poetry put to music. I enjoyed it heaps.
