Poet's Pleasures

Updated on April 21, 2010

L’Amour Français


My eyes,

Two singular points in the back roads of the city of lights.

Your smile,

Sunshine reflecting on the gravel sand of Nice.

My dress,

Flowing lavender fields dancing lightly in the breeze of Provence.

Your coat,

Majestic drapery from the mirrored hall of Versailles.

My laugh,

A monotonous streetcar gurgling down the Champs-de-Elysees.

Your salutation,

Vuillaume in the symphony of melancholy and majestic violins.

My surprise,

Mounted tension rods on the top level of the Eiffel Tower.

Your embrace,

Parade of nationalists down the streets on the 14th of July.

Our ending,

Yellow flower blooming on the grey rocks on the cliff of Normandy.
