A Paris Love Affair

18 Mar

 

Do you recall the night my love

When once we strolled

The streets of olde Paris

Beneath the gas lamps

Shrouded in soft falling rain

Hand in hand

On the cobblestones

On that night of love

We strolled

Feeling the cold mists rising

From the river Seine

 We were so in love

My sweet heart

Your eyes sparkled

In those early days

Of our happiness

I gazed into your eyes

With adoration

And caressed

Your long radiant hair

Protected that evening

By your parasol

 The gas lamps

Had just been lit

And you shyly

Clasped my hand

In your soft tender grip

Betoken tenderness in love

We strolled till late

My sweet heart

Till the gas lamps

Grew dim

 And beneath their fading light

We kissed

We professed our love for eternity

And arm in arm

In a lover’s dream

Our ghosts faded

Into the mists

Of the river Seine as

We strolled the olde Streets of Paris

    Love Paris – and the song. Ah, brings back some childhood memories of some who love that song.

      Thank you my friend for taking the time to read and comment on my poetry
      This poem was written out of imagination as I have never been to Paris
      My wife thinks it may be a memory of another life, one never knows
      Sunday night here now so bedtime for me soon, I wish you a beautiful week ahead
      Cheers

      Thanks Claudia for calling by and reading my poem
      I have to admit I have never been there so this poem was pure romantic imagination
      although my wife thinks I write from a past life, you are lucky to have seen the city of lovers
      If you go again please show many pics
      I wish you well and a beaut weekend

      Thanks Androgoth , think its time I started to come up with a new way of writing
      Even some of my poems are outdated and bloody boring to me, hope all is okay in Whitby with you and Jen
      My imagination or has Jen slowed down on posting ?

        Yes she is taking more time out at the moment and just adding bits and pieces but she will be back on shortly I can assure you of that our wickedly fine great friend 🙂

        BTW…

        Your style of poetry is not outdated Ian, as romantic offerings such as yours are always well received, you only need to read your readers comments for that one so keep up the great work 🙂

      No worries Sue , was just an old poem full of some sort of old mans reminicenses
      from a long forgotten past life.
      Hope your life is going well and you are happy but I can always feel your emotions
      and you are a happy and contented girl

    Enjoyed this Ian lovely imagery, but just does not ring from your own soul, If that is the best way I can put it, or something lacking, I think perhaps you will be able to understand what I mean yourself, as I can not quite put my finger on it.

    Enjoyed this Ian, but lacking your own magic, if that explains it, just some thing different about it. Not from your own soul. I think I am not explaining it very well, perhaps you will understand what I mean.

    Magical. 🙂 Paris truly is the city of romance. But as the old saying goes, “No matter where you go, there you are.” Paris can be anywhere. I often dance with my wife in the kitchen, and tell her how beautiful she is in the car. We needn’t travel to have to be in the romantic mood or have acuity for a woman’s beauty.
    Lovely write, thanks for sharing Ian.
    Peace.

      Thank you my friend Miro , for some reason the olde world of Paris holds my attraction
      My wife is a great believer in past lives and feels sure we were once lovers in Paris many lives ago
      No you dont have to travel to the land of love and romance Miro , hold your wife in your arms and gaze into her eyes
      She will take you to the land of love and romance
      Cheers
