Click here to hear the poet read the poem:

she walks bridges

he has so many reasons to love her
the girl with the smile that bewitches
he believes she is half mermaid
he knows that she walks bridges

she brings summer time in winter
one smile and the weather switches
a gentle breeze sweeps rain away
she laughs and she walks bridges

she floats through life with sparkling eyes
helps him taste a thousand mixes
shows him the way to renaissance
holds his hand as she walks bridges

she paints his world in colours new
she brings him love and untold riches
he is penniless but full of joy
watching her as she walks bridges

The following is a superb interpretation of this poem by Kris Anderson, Californian musician and composer, and friend of AnElephant:

    I love the descriptions in this a mermaid who walks bridges, a creature of magic yet a human with legs as she can walk. I also like how his attraction to her, their love is expressed by the changing of the weather. A Magic she has and/or perhaps something he feels with her like her smile bringing sunny weather. Makes me think of ” The Lady of Shallot” and how weather was used in that poem but your poem is used weather the exact opposite of the way it is used there. I love the line he is “penniless but full of riches” it’s a wonderful description. Hugs Elephant. Hope you are doing well! How has your hand been, er trunk, did the surgery help it? Or still waiting? More hugs!
