Manhattan Muir

Brooklyn Bridge
Roebling’s Bridge (Brooklyn NY)


In my head echo the Muir Woods

Ancient, silent, changing yes,

but at a pace no one living can see.

Creation, stately, profound, not to be moved.


Around me sounds the vast city

Ever new, abounding in cacophony,

shifting constantly, as often as stocks rise and fall,

a babel, imposing and imposed, never still.


Between the two . . .

Muir Woods (SanFrancisco, CA)


It is no simple easy

to build a bridge.

Ask Washington Roebling.
