    This brought to mind the first lines of poet T.S. Eliot’s “Dry Salvages.”

    “I do not know much about gods; but I think that the river
    Is a strong brown god – sullen, untamed and intractable,
    Patient to some degree, at first recognised as a frontier;
    Useful, untrustworthy, as a conveyor of commerce;
    Then only a problem confronting the builder of bridges.”

    Eliot grew up around the Mississippi River. I think he would have liked your bench and your river.

      Many thanks. Although the Charles River is no match for the Mississippi River, it provides many great places to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

      Thank you very much. So far this year we have been very lucky here in Boston. We still have relatively warm weather, which allows us to enjoy being outside.

      Yes, indeed, but although we have relatively warm weather right now, for a really pleasant stay on this bench, the temperature should be a little higher. Thank you.
