Here’s a book with the word bridge in the title:
Rook (Bridge & Sword: Awakenings #1): Bridge & Sword World by JC Andrijeski
A covered bridge in my region:
Lehigh Valley, PA — covered bridges
Bogert Covered Bridge — Fish Hatchery Rd. Allentown, PA 18103 USA
The oldest bridge in Lehigh County, it dates back to 1841 and spans 145 feet over Little Lehigh River.
It’s right near the:
Museum of Indian Culture which “showcases the cultural heritage of the Delaware/Lenape Indians” (my people).
SPRING ACROSS THE BRIDGE / SPACE ISN’T LIMITED
Against the ship
Gather to view as
Fizzy drinks which spill as
Spring across the bridge
Behold nature’s power
We are travelers in awe
For a few moments
Passing the point
From known to unknown
As we venture
We cross the bridge
From this world to the next

Sixty is the word count but,
double to one-twenty for
trouble that’s risky.
Read lines up after down,
indeed this is nifty!

While explaining poetry generally ruins it, non-native English speakers might have a difficult time with this.
Information/ translation assistance:
“Reverse poetry is a poem that can be read forwards one way and have a meaning, but also be read backwards and have another different meaning.” This poem is meant to be read from the top line down and then from the bottom line back up, because it’s actually two free verse poems in one.
The Titanic departed in spring time.
Einstein–Rosen bridges, or wormholes, are “a theoretical passage through space-time that could create shortcuts for long journeys across the universe.” Being caught in one that collapses could crash a spaceship into a star, or multiple stars as it’s ripped apart.
The bridge of a ship is the room or platform from which the ship can be commanded.
Ships can be water vessels or space vessels.
Waves can be a curled body of water or a movement of the hand.
Stars can be famous people, or people who worked for White Star Lines, or giant balls of burning gas in space.
“Fizzy drinks” — Sparkling wine, such as Champagne, or other carbonated beverages.
Pop can mean to open a fizzy drink (as in “pop one open”), or it can mean to burst.
Spring can be a time of year or a rapid movement.
“Cross the bridge” — can be a metaphorical way to say dying, passing on, going to Heaven, etc. — can also literally mean to cross an actual bridge.
