anchored to the infinite

The builder who first bridged Niagara’s gorge,
Before he swung his cable, shore to shore,
Sent out across the gulf his venturing kite
Bearing a slender cord for unseen hands
To grasp upon the further cliff and draw
A greater cord, and then a greater yet;
Till at the last across the chasm swung
The cable then the mighty bridge in air!

Anchored to the Infinite by Edwin Markham

Not that Hiawatha Avenue is quite “Niagara’s gorge”, of course, but this is still pretty darned impressive for a bicycle bridge. Would that the design of the new 35W bridge were as inspiring…
