excerpt - "to brooklyn bridge"
hart crane - 1930

"Under thy shadow by the piers I waited;
Only in darkness is thy shadow clear.
The City's fiery parcels all undone,
Already snow submerges an iron year . . .

O Sleepless as the river under thee,
Vaulting the sea, the prairies' dreaming sod,
Unto us lowliest sometime sweep, descend
And of the curveship lend a myth to God."

  4. thanks so much my friends. i have always been amazed and fascinated by bridges and the ideas of bridges: objects that are defined by movement - the spanning of both space and time. and this poem by hart crane has stuck with me since childhood - kind of says it all
