Paris

City divine, blessed among mothers,
See, how she stretches out her arms
As she fondles her lone children
As they stroll in the early dawn.

City anonymous, love's paradise,
See, how she protects the lovers
Hides their stolen hours, allows their kisses
Wisely closes her eyes and smiles.

City harmonious, city mine,
How I've loved your grace, gentle caresses,
How I'll miss your stones where lovers roam,
Enveloped around obscure time.

Panmelys 1994

(metaphor of this poem Notre Dame, written sitting in George Whitman's apartment; looking at her architecture)
