I draw bridges
for you to find me:
A fabric bridge,
with my watercolors ...

A suspension bridge,
with bright chalk ...
Wood bridges,
with crayon ...

Drawbridges,
silver, coppery ..
Unbreakable bridges,
of stone, invisible ...

And you ... Who would believe!
You don't even see them!
I do a hundred, ten, one ...
You don't cross any!

(Elsa Isabel Bornemann)
