Strolling down the avenue.
The Eiffel Tower was the destination.
Nearby the carousel sat waiting for me.
I paid my 3 euros and quickly hopped on.
Tears filled my eyes as round and round we went.
It took me to another time, a time of fairies and childhood delights.
For moments I was a little girl.
It was a dream come true to ride that prancing horse.
A visit to Saint Severin in the Saint Germaine district
was the next stop before having tea with a friend.
As tea time approached we strolled along the avenue
next to the Seine River.
Oh the sights to see!
Truly was this a bride and groom or just a photo shoot.
The photographer didn't like that I was nearby with my camera.
After a few snaps of the lens we strolled on our way.
So glad the water was not flooding the street while we were there,
but sad for the flooding that occurred after leaving.
Sending best wishes to one of my favorite cities for success in returning
to this beauty.
Yes, I do love Paris.
