A problem had perplexed me ~
and wouldn't let me go.
The reason it upset me ~
was a reason I didn't know.
It came upon a showy day ~
with a bridge I sought to cross.
But when my feet touched earth again ~
I felt tremendous loss.
I turned and crossed the bridge again ~
not knowing why, yet feeling lead.
Whatever reason perplexed my soul ~
had left my weary head.
