ND - Notra Dame in the news

A Paris icon nearly lost to fire Its roof has now gone and its famous spire There's talk it was an electrical fault Before the fire, relics' moved to a vault. Help quickly arrived they had to move fast The people of Paris just stood aghast All over the world it was on the news Flames engulfed the spire and even the pews. The icon of course is the Notre Dame To have lost it would have been a great shame Over nine hundred years it has stood proud A magnet for tourists, always a crowd. And thankfully that day nobody died Many were in shock, many people cried But it was saved from being totally lost 'Twill be restored but it's going to cost. Still go to Paris there's other grandeur The Eiffel tower or the Sacra Coeur Faithful can still pray, God is everywhere You don't need a church to say a prayer.
