"The Bridge at Argenteuil" is a collection of sonnets focusing on the theme of creativity and its importance in our lives. The poems in this second volume center on the topics of painting, art, music, and literature. The title poem explains the poet's reactions to seeing a copy of this Monet painting hanging in her bedroom each morning as she is waking up. The final poem in this volume is the poet's reflections to another Monet painting, "The Cliff Walk At Pourville (1882). Frances Sydnor Tehie was an extraordinarily sensitive and talented poet who relished beauty in everyday life and believed highly in the importance of creativity. Her poems in this volume celebrate the creative spirit in the human experience. She realized that creativity can be found at an early age. This belief is mentioned in her poem, "The Gift Bestowed," in which she reflects on her older sister's interest and talent at sewing from a young age. The poet's belief that creativity should be part of everyone's life can be seen in the poem, "Leave Something Shining." The title of this poem refers to the concept of making a lasting contribution for which one will never be forgotten. In this sense, these poems are indeed a lasting testimonial to the poet's lyrical abilities and devotion to creativity in the fields of art and music. In addition to writing poetry, Frances Sydnor Tehie was also a private piano teacher who deeply loved teaching students to appreciate music from a young age.
