We Need A Bridge At Echols Street

Poem By Frank V. Gardner

(Tune: 'I've Been Working on the Railroad')

We were walking on the causeway;
Got pushed into the creek.
That is why we're using Maple;
It happened just last week.

What we need is something safer
For walker, bike, or car.
Echols Street needs a real bridge
So we don't walk so far.

(When my daughter was pushed off the causeway into the creek in May 1963, I wrote this marching song. Meanwhile I organized some 50 neighborhood children for a peaceful demonstration at Vienna Town Hall later the same month.)
