by Dynely Hussey

God built a bridge
Across the sky
From ridge to ridge,
And arched it high;
And made it bright
Against the storm,
And wrought with light
Its rounded form.

So leapt your love
Across the sky
That loured above
So hopelessly;
And at its end
Of trembling light
You stand, O friend,
Beyond my sight.

An Adrian Helmet was a French regulation helmet named after its designer.
