Kapunda Bridge

(for Wanda)

Here, in this fading photograph you stand
beside a buttressed wall where Ross Road ran
across a massive blue-stone bridge that fanned
above still pools. There, laughing with me and
new love along an adolescent day,
you leant against a wind blown, stone-thrown arc
and slowly spanned
a twilight land
and brought my day from dark.
