Moonlight on the Seine

We watched the moonlight on La Seine Glissading down in gold refrains But then, it seemed, the silence crept with old cliché's, we can't forget ... The moon's façade disguised the pain... C'est la vie, what would be gained to wish for things which can't remain ... But goodbye tears, are sometimes wept We watched the moon The same old songs are sung again Where lyrics speak in whispers, kept A déjà vu, that lingers yet Of love that left just sweet regrets We watched the moon

    Hi Carrie, Very moving poem. Nicely structured with sad images. I have only travelled on the Sein River in deep winter with heavy snow coming down. Paris will always hold a special dark magic taste of life for me. I love the place. Congratulations on a well deserved win. Earl
