The Bridge Builder

by Will Allen Dromgoole

An old man going a lone highway
Came at the evening, cold and gray,
To a chasm, vast and wide and steep,
With waters rolling cold and deep.
The old man crossed in the twilight dim,
That sullen stream had no fears for him;
But he turned when safe on the other side,
And built a bridge to span the tide.

"Old man," said a fellow pilgrim near,
"You are wasting your strength with building here.
Your journey will end with the ending day,
You never again will pass this way.
You've crossed the chasm, deep and wide,
Why build you this bridge at eventide?"

The builder lifted his old gray head.
"Good friend, in the path I have come," he said,
there followeth after me today
A youth whose feet must pass this way.
This chasm that has been naught to me
To the fair-haired youth may a pitfall be.
He, too, must cross in the twilight dim -
Good friend, I am building the bridge for him."

A Gift of Love for Generations to Come
HSBC Insurance recently released the results of a survey of 21,000 people in 21 countries. It will come as no surprise that, when asked about what they most wanted to pass on to their heirs, about 60% of those surveyed gave My Perspective on Life, or Religion, or Knowledge as their top choice, while only 10% listed money.
