The Forth Rail Bridge
There's a contrast in the
structure as each spar is led astray,
The sunset lingers for a moment
as the sun sinks into the spray.
A fleeting glance is cast when
a movement is seen below,
A train passes by with a
clatter despite the Forth's ebb and flow.
We have known the strength of
the bridge when passing across its rails,
And it's beauty fascinates
those of us who have made a contribution with a few penny hails.
The sun sets into being the
moment we might gasp and sigh whilst there.
Each rivet is then enclosed by
the darkness and each second gives us a share.
