  • THE BRIDGE BUILDER

     

    An old man, going a lone highway,

    came at the evening, cold and gray,

    to a chasm vast and deep and wide;

    the old man crossed in the twilight dim,

    the sullen stream had no fear for him;

    but he turned when safe on the other side

    and built a bridge to span the tide.

    "Old man," said a fellow pilgrim near,

    "You are wasting your strength with building here;

    your journey will end with the ending day,

    you never again will pass this way;

    you've crossed the chasm deep and wide;

    why build you this bridge at evening tide?"

     

    The builder lifted his old gray head,

    "Good friend, in the path I have come," he said,

    "there followeth after me today,

    a youth whose feet must pass this way;

    this chasm that has been naught to me

    to that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be;

    he, too, must cross in the twilight dim -

    good friend, I am building this bridge for him."
