A Windy Day on the Water Street Bridge


Standing on the bridge

Pitching pennies to the river

One two three four five

While the water slides by

With its swift sure sound

And I wonder if I really heard

The pennies plops upon the water

But the river flows by smiling

And doesn't answer questions
