It's never easy to know what to get you for Valentine's Day. Chocolate, roses, jewelry or sexy firemen. But since I wanted to give you something truly unique to make up for my lackadaisical blogging habits of late, I asked a poet to write a poem especially for you.
À toi, habitant du monde,
amoureux des étoiles et de la Tour Eiffel
pour que ton rêve de Café de Flores et des bateaux sur la Seine
scintille entre ces mots comme la lumière des villes.
Bois un café avec moi, marche dans les rues du Marais,
l'âme de Paris chuchote entre les pierres pour raconter cette histoire
d'une ile au milieu des terres.
Thanks to the free offer by Galeries Lafayette, lots of people will be able to surprise their sweethearts with tender words this Valentine's Day. I've even got a special poem for Stephane, but I'm not posting that one online. It's a secret.
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
To you, inhabitant of the world
Lover of the stars and Eiffel Tower
So that your dream of Cafe de Flores and boats on the Seine
Sparkle between these words like the lights of cities.
Drink a coffee with me and walk down the streets of the Marais
The soul of Paris whispers between the stones to tell this story of an island in the middle of land.
