Poems about Paris

Paris is a most beautiful city

Go; you will see something pretty

Lit up at night, what a sight

Let's Spend the Weekend in Paris

Let's spend the weekend in Paris

The Tour Eiffel is magnifique always

Let's just drop everything and go

Leave the dishes, the job, the car

Let's just go, get those last minute tix

Our passports are ready

What are we waiting for

The City of Lights is awake for us

We'll see the Louvre and the Catacombs

High points and low points

Of art and architecture and history

Eat every patisserie imaginable

And speak what French we know

From high school

What a kick it'll be

We'll ride the Metro

And walk everywhere

And take the train to Versailles

Are we nuts or what

I say, let's do it, now

Before we lose our chance

Let's spend the weekend in Paris

Dining in Paris

The best of world cuisine is found

In Paris, in every Quartier around

French of course, but also German and Greek

Moroccan, Chinese, American are there to seek

Huge kababs await at the Quartier Latin

And lots of breakfast choices tous les matins

So expect to be overwhelmed dans toutes les rues

But if you're on a budget, a fresh baguette will do

Charles Baudelaire: Paris Blues: Poems in Prose (English and French Edition)

Your French Kitchen

Before you visit or when you return

Pick a French recipe that you will learn

Follow it carefully, measure exact

Enjoy your creation; let senses react

Bon Appetit!

Le Tour

About the Tour de France - the ultimate cycling endeavor

Captivating is Le Tour de France

We follow the cyclists' keen endurance

Muscular legs to pump the pedals

Many have Olympic medals

The leader of the stage earns yellow

For team and sponsor, a happy fellow

Exerting up the mountain courses

Spectators watching these tour de forces

Racing, coasting down the other side

Always jockeying for position on the ride

The peleton, a safe place in an early stage

But, break away you must, to make front page

At home in HiDef we can see the sweat

A circuit of France they will have met

The cycling world is tense on that July Sunday

To see sweet victory on the Champs-Ãlysées

By Mindy Makuta (aka MyFairLadyah) - Reprinted from

Cycling in Paris

Le Tour Eiffel

Take the elevator to the sky

Look at Paris with deep sighs

Dine at La Tour d'Argent up high

Then down the stairs to the 2nd rise

A Giraffe Goes to Paris

Paris at Christmastime

Paris at Christmas time was so incroyable

The Living Crèche at Notre Dame, tres memorable

The Champs-Ãlysées splendidly festooned and lighted

It's time to return to be utterly delighted

Viva La France

Bienvenue a Paris (Welcome to Paris) ! - Thank you for your visit
