OLD LANTER

It fascinated me, the old stone bridge in Baroque style and the narrow street leading to it. The street was crowded with people. An old lantern illuminated a stone bridge. It seemed lovely and romantic. The magnificent and beautiful stood proudly. And he lured the gaze of curious walkers. He had served for many years, many things had seen and heard. And one day he was no longer there. Everyone wondered where he disappeared? It’s not gone – I whispered. Quite simply he retired.

  1. The image will not appear for me. Also the formatting has gone and the poem shows as a block of text like this. 😦

    1. I hope the picture has appeared, and that one beautiful flower can be seen. I photographed it a few weeks ago while walking around. It matters to me if you liked the text. Thanks a lot for the comment. I wish you a nice day.

      1. The poem format dtill isn’t happening. The words are fine but I always feel the way a poem is displayed is an important part of its essential message. Fortunately I could see that in my e-mail version. 🙂
