Twittering Tale #73 – 27 February 2018

Twas a grand old crossing. Proudly it stood in all seasons.
As age does weary us so too with crossings. Splintering, weathering, all took a toll.
I knew how it felt when bits started to fall off.
Now it leans as do I.
It’s just a matter of time I’ve them say.
Til the morrow then. (275 characters)

    Hammer in a few new struts, give it a lick of paint and it would be almost as good as new. Pity we can’t do the same 😀

    Oh…I can sooo relate. Just a matter of time! 🤔

  4. Your tale has a fine Victorian feel to it, nicely done.
