For Camille at Pierrefonds...

Where the clouds hang low in the sky
and the sun lights the countryside blue
 yellow greens into gold
and so the pictures unfold...
When the paint on the canvas is set
the artist sits out in the street
Rue Gagny, Eragny, Camille Pissarro
and the lollipop trees look so neat
Tweet tweet!

  2. I don't 'do' tweets, but I love your poem. Did you visit Place du Tertre in Montmartre? Tourist tat but nice tourist tat and a good creperie to sit and watch the artists arting and the tourists ... er ... passing.

  3. Hi Viv, we didn't go to Montmatre this time but we have been there in the past, we like to go up that little furnicular railway to Sacre Coer. And you're right it is very touristy there, even I bought an inflatable Eiffel Tower from a street seller. Oh, and the amazing view from up there! I could go on...
