"THE FOOTBRIDGE"


Each day brings feet

Across my planks

Transporting hordes 

Between the banks.


They stroll and tramp,

They jog and hike

Across the stream,

They walk and bike.


Foliage peeks through

My rustic rails

To greet my guests 

On walking trails.


Fresh leaves invite

Folks to slow down

To view the day

In her green gown.


        This footbridge crosses a stream along the walking/biking trail around North Park Lake (Allegheny County, PA) where we often do Nordic Walking.

CJ..that is a wonderful poem to go with your photo. How wonderful to be able to take a walk in a beautiful part of the country...I hadn't heard of Nordic Walking, but it reminds me of when I used to cross country ski.I am going to ask my physical therapist about those poles. What an interesting idea for a rehab... Thanks for participating in Nature Notes, I appreciate it....Michelle
