A Night Somewhere Group

For the Love of Canon

And far in the hazy distance
Of that lovely night in June,
The blaze of the flaming furnace
Gleamed redder than the moon

And like those waters rushing
Among the wooden piers,
A flood of thoughts came o’er me
That filled my eyes with tears

Yet whenever I cross the river
On its bridge with wooden piers,
Like the odor of brine from the ocean
Comes the thought of other years

And I think how many thousands
Of care-encumbered men,
Each bearing his burden of sorrow,
Have crossed the bridge since then.

From the poem…The Bridge by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
