Muffin, MINDY, Sidney and Jeanne will be reading their poems, as well as the special treats of Melanie and Holly, who have written poems for this very special occasion.

They say Paris is always a good idea…

by Melanie

Fabulous scarves and jaunty berets
Tiny quaint corner cafes
The smell of freshly baked bread filling the air
Dainty pastry indulgences eaten without care
Museums and bookstores to browse away the hours
Sculptures and paintings, fresh markets and flowers
Rose colored glasses and twinkling lights
Lend an air of magic to brighten the nights
The City of Love ? I confess; I don’t know
I’ve never been but I’d sure love to go

Whimsy

by Holly

I’d love to be a Paris breeze
with wings of fluff that
trip for free defying gravity
oh, it is insanity
till whimsy flings me into the
Seine on blue green waves
where tiny crabs with side-ways
eyes escaping opportunity
live in shells of pink and tan
fine shelter for living things
when I’m done just for fun
I’ll sail through coral flamingos
asleep on one leg.

SAVED

by Muffin

I was saved
as a puppy
after being left
by the side of the road
the chicklets
are loving and kind
they open their hearts
to everyone
but they aren’t afraid
to fight for the rights
of all animals
and they are more than willing
to raid factory farms
and save animals
from lives of misery
and death
I love living at The Coop
this is a good place for dogs
and everyone else
a healing place
filled with love
and best of all
it’s FUN

PARIS

by Mindy

Paris
holds out her arms
to all who visit
she bestows her beauty
on everyone
flashes of petals
tiny boats on a pond
bookstores
and fresh food
open air cafe’s
cobblestones
cheese
chocolate
bread
and young people
who want to come to
America
it’s so wonderful
and the airplane
was fun too

PARIS

by Sidney

I was old enough
to go on the Paris trip
it’s beautiful there
and I met so many
friendly pigeons
and people
everything is white
and there are parks
and flowers all over
flower shops
and desserts
and butter
lots and lots of butter
and a different language
and statues and art
everywhere you look
and more gardens
and a river
and I saw
a tiny glove store
and…
well
it’s truly wonderful
I can’t wait to go back

THE CITY OF LIGHTS

by Jeanne

Paris glitters
from her heart
you can feel her pulse
beating
she sings softly to you
making you her own
so that you never
forget
her wonder
and beauty
and she always
wants you
to return
always
once you go there
you can never
forget her
