>Like the bridge in the story
>We span two safer shores.
We are the cadent or falling houses.
The bridge is the one in the nursery story,
“London bridge is falling down…”
The safer shores are the angular and
succedant houses that lie on either side of us.
>Our rhythm is quite clumsy
>You might not stay upright.
Rhythm is also cadence.
You can’t stay upright if you are falling.
>Those who come to visit,
>always decline to stay.
Being on a decline they fall away.
And are certainly not inclined to come again so very soon.
Ever try to cross a rope bridge?
This probably explains why in timing cadent means fast!
>Please tell us who we are
>and then be on your way.
Cadent or falling houses!
