A Simile for Her Smile

Your smiling, or the hope, the thought of it,
Makes in my mind such pause and abrupt ease
As when the highway bridgegates fall,
Balking the hasty traffic, which must sit
On each side massed and staring, while
Deliberately the drawbridge starts to rise:

Then horns are hushed, the oilsmoke rarefies,
Above the idling motors one can tell
The packet's smooth approach, the slip,
Slip of the silken river past the sides,
The ringing of clear bells, the dip
And slow cascading of the paddle wheel.

-- Richard Wilbur

Great shot! I remember that -- I always wondered what it would be like to climb it, or to sneak in beforehand and lie down on one of the slant beams and ride it up.

In my Arts Council days, I met someone who claimed he did that as a teenager: He and his friends would get some beers and then climb up under the Fremont bridge, riding it up and down. I don't know if he was pulling my leg, but it was a good story.

Yeah, great composition. Something about the placement of the traffic signals really makes it.

What is the building? A parking garage?

It's a bridge, at the height of its rise. Seattle has a number of drawbridges. This is the University Bridge.

(The Fremont Bridge is supposedly the busiest drawbridge of its type in the world.)
