Photo Challenge #427 – As I was walking

As I was walking across the bridge

My mind was puzzled, don’t know which

Mindful of the breeze, grateful to be here

Still I have to decide, that is clear

Where to go, public or oxbridge

Filtering art from science might abridge

Film, chemistry, each one has a pitch

My future judging to adhere

As I was walking

There I was thinking across the bridge

Still don’t know which is which

Perhaps I’ll have a beer with my peer

The day is lovely which gives me cheer

On this historic suspension footbridge

As I was walking*

  • A Rondeau is a French form, 15 lines long, consisting of three stanzas: a quintet, a quatrain, and a sestet with a rhyme scheme as follows: aabba aabR aabbaR. Lines 9 and 15 are short – a refrain (R) consisting of a phrase taken from line one. The other lines are longer (but all of the same metrical length).
