Until then, I would like to share a poem by Bob McCue about the Poughkeepsie Bridge

Editor: Frank Florianz

Just this time in 74. Smoke rose into the Poughkeepsie sky. Just this time in 74 I watched an era die. Who knew trains would never be again so high in the Poughkeepsie sky. Just this time in 74. A time of Watergate and war, Silent fell a railroad bridge. Amid a world changing too fast to mourn . The Hudson goes forever on. The river breezes call. For thirty years a giant slept. Waiting for a rebirth or fall. Walk the walkway today. Feel the river breezes call. Sojourners walk the mile high above the tides rise and fall. Far below a river tug carries on its chores. I walk the mile and remember the times before a day in ’74. Bob McCue….
