Spring's Picture Window ...

“To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.”
                   ~ Walt Whitman
                          ~ 1819-1892
A window in the historic Bogert’s Covered Bridge in Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, perfectly frames the sweetness of spring on a beautiful May evening as the Little Lehigh Creek flows gently beneath the bridge.

Bogert’s Covered Bridge spans 145 feet over the Little Lehigh Creek.

Built in 1841, its history traces back to the mid-1700s when the Bogert family moved into a log cabin next to the future site of the bridge. It is the oldest covered bridge in Lehigh County and among the oldest in the country. It is open only to pedestrian and bicycle traffic, as well as the occasional rider on horseback.

Bogert’s Covered Bridge is a wooden Burr Truss bridge with vertical plank siding and a gable roof. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

Dancing In The Mirror ...

"There are two ways of spreading light:
to be the candle or the mirror 
that reflects it."
                    ~ Edith Wharton
                                   ~ 1862-1937 

The light of a waning winter sunset
dances as it is mirrored in the waters
spilling over a crest of the 
Little Lehigh Creek in Lehigh Parkway,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Color Tide ...

"First the tide rushes in
Plants a kiss on the shore ...
So I rush to your side
Like the incoming tide ..."
                                     ~ "Ebb Tide"
                                                      ~ Carl Sigman, lyricist
                                                      ~ Robert Maxwell, composer
                                                                              ~ 1953

The morning sun sweeps and swirls the colors of
October like a dream in a crest of the
Little Lehigh Creek, Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Touching In Time ...

"If the hands of time were
hands that I could hold ...

Hand in hand we'd choose
the moments that should last ...

Until the hands of time would choose
to wave goodbye."
                                    "The Hands of Time"
                                               ("Brian' s Song)
                                          ~ Music by Michael Legrand
                                                 Lyrics by Marilyn & Alan Bergman 

Autumn leaves touch momentarily in the 
crest of the Little Lehigh Creek on an October morning
