7-12 Student Poems/Turmes

July 12, 2001


I wander.

A place,

Like a desert,

Barren of humanity,

I seek.

Barely touched

By human hands,

My surroundings are.

Here I find

Sanctuary, solace and peace.

Only faint impressions

Of human presence,

Like film

Twice exposed,

Inform this scene.

Faith, I have,

In this bridge

To direct me

In its near-immortal grace.

Direct me

To a realm

Apart from this one.

-- by Esther Turmes, inspired by Ernest Savage's "Trees by the Bridge"
