Lady Devorgilla Bridge ©

Robbie Kennedy Bennett
Wolverhampton, England
2007

Contented am I, in the Douglas Arms,
A corner Inn on Irish Street.
Tomorrow morn this traveller man,
From Dumfries town I must retreat.

Let me recall an event of the day,
In my personal poetic way.

Pretty patterns appear in water,
In water, oh so clear,
Could an artist ever capture?
All the ingredients and then enrapture,
This locality here by where,
The artist and I, will our picture compare?

Lady Devorgilla Bridge,
Over the Nith her arches stand.
Oh, to be the artist,
With colours and brush in a talented hand.
I'd paint those patterns that did appear,
In water, water, oh, so clear.

Goodnight in twilight of the Douglas Arms,
This corner Inn on Irish Street.
Tomorrow morn this traveller man,
From Dumfries town I must retreat.
Leaving behind the patterns, pretty patterns that appear,
By Lady Devorgilla Bridge,
The auld, Auld brig,
In water, flowing water, water, oh, so clear.
