070416.Claverton, The Lively Ivy Viney Crawled up the Water Bridge

The lively ivy viney crawled up the water bridge
Deep into mortar grew its roots along the ridge
While trapped moisture and the sun fed its photosynthesis
But the resultant mortar loss means the bridge is now much missed

Bridge over the Kennet and Avon Canal, Claverton, Somerset

  1. Fantastic – I’d like to throw a pebble over!

  2. I think you need to expand “vine” to “viney.”

    The lively ivy viney crawled up the water bridge!

    Down came the frost- put the viney in the fridge!

    Up came the sun and warmed up all its veins!

    And the lively ivy viney crawled up the bridge again!

  3. Great one, JC!
    will do, er, have done!

  5. Your new poem made me bust out laughing. Very well done. Not many people try to rhyme “photosynthesis.”
