    Yup, That’s where I dropped your husband… So what are your plans, now that you’re a rich young widow?

    Quoting from a hymn he was in the process of writing, poetic young Isaac Watts smoothly feeds his lady friend a line as to why they should “gather ye rosebuds why ye may”! —


    “The busy tribes of flesh and blood,

    With all their lives and cares,

    Are carried downwards by thy flood,

    And lost in following years.


    “Time, like an ever-rolling stream,

    Bears all its sons away;

    They fly forgotten, as a dream

    Dies at the opening day.”




    The romantic Spell was broken, however, when a mass of wriggling tadpoles inopportunely took that moment to sweep en masse along the brook. The couple both took it as a sign to put the brakes on things, before the inter-action became inter-lewd and ended up becoming inter-something else.

    /// Geoff brought Emma to The Trysting Place,

    where a couple could court face-to-face.

    From that small wooden bridge

    on a desolate ridge,

    Emma vanished, not leaving a trace.

    It was then that Geoffrey found out that Veronica was into “water sports”.

    Veronica prayed for a divine interruption. Her date babbled more than the brook.

    If this is all it takes to make him pee, a honeymoon in Niagara Falls is out of the question.

    Why did you drop the ring in the brook, Emma? Now I will have to go buy another box of CrackerJacks.

    You must remember “thist”/

    A tryst is still a tryst/

    A meeting “on the sly”/

    Two people giving love a try:/

    One wonders why….///

    A meeting in the wood/

    They’re both up to no good/

    Each to their spouse did lie-/

    If they get caught, someone may die:/

    One wonders why…///

    Each made a marriage- possibly perforce-/

    Shortly thereafter ravaged by remorse/

    Finding “real love”- not waiting to divorce,/

    Their trysts to justify..///

    It’s still the same old story/

    Sometimes the tale gets gory/

    (One hopes this one stays dry !)/

    But something always goes awry../

    One wonders why ..

    To the bridge they were wont to trudge/

    Where they each aired a lingering grudge/

    Then, the grudge being aired/

    To their home they repaired/

    Unresolved- because neither would budge…

    He planned to make out with the pretty film star, Over a stream near a secluded sand bar, But when they finally got there, And she was too tired to really care, He realized he had chosen a Bridge Too Far

    The Trysting PLace

    Paste (including the quote marks) 

    "Category:People on bridges in art" Wikimedia 

    (syntax supported by the Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, and Ecosia search engines) in the browser address bar (or search for it using one of those search engines) and choose the first Category: found, and once there find the text string Trysting, and click its link for info and links that point to more info about this roughly B4 paper size painting. 

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by merely clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s THROWBACK FRIDAY: MASTERPIECE #2033 (9/6/18) (November 29, 2023) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment. I have added a comment there pointing to my blog comment pointing to info about this artist I used to point to here. So far, 45 works by this artist have been used here (56 times total, including this Throwback Friday, and 10 prior repeats), the September 6, 2018, strip being its first use. The August 21, 2023, strip has the prior by him.

    No response at all from her when I made a phallic reference about my cane.…

    How can I impress her and show her what kind of a man I am?…

    I know! I’ll look down her blouse!

    For Monday:

    The model’s sacro-iliac/

    Was swiftly beginning to crack:/

    She was willing to pose/

    Without any clothes/

    But this took her completely aback..
