Great men die, and so they lie
In their tombs and graves
Glorified, magnified
By their followers and slaves

Quiet mounds on the Downs
Lasting through the many ages
May cover cruel tyrants
Rather than wise sages

All men must die, all tombs will lie

    Dear Kim,

    Thank you very much for liking Ken WELLS’ painting of a View from Roman Bridge Penmachno. I have yet to visit the bridge myself but the certainty that it is very old, but quite how old is in question. Is it nearly 2000 years old or just a few hundred years old.
    One thing is certain, many people have crossed it on their way with certainty to eternity.
    When I was ill youngster, my Dad used to fire up my determination by reminding me that you are a long time dead! Cheerful or what?

    Bridges are part of life and travelling in North Wales. There are so many rivers rushing from the mountains of Snowdonia to the Irish Sea that bridges are a necessity. They make short jorneys for crows rather longer for without wings. They are all interesting, even the new ones.

    Keep safe and well,

    Best wishes,
