Take it to the bridge

In response to the daily post prompt Bridge

Wonderful pieces of engineering

traversing the great canal waterway

passing across them on a daily basis

I marvel at the way they work

Some, they lift until weights stop,

and some turn round as ferry anchors drop

but without them the canal would make travellers cross

and with no trade to speak of – it would be quite a loss.
