Is it illogical to think you might swing
down on a rope from a bell tower
and take a stroll with me in France?
Even if you can’t dance like Gene Kelly
like in An American in Paris
we could chat by the river
and pretend we are Cary Grant
and Audrey Hepburn discussing
who we don’t suspect and who
we do while licking ice-cream
off our fingers.
Written for dVerse Poetics where Sanaa hosts today and asks us to choose
one of the following two options:
Write a poem that’s loosely based on French ideals and culture. You may
opt to share your experience of visiting France and many of its lovely cities
if you have done so. ✅
Write a poem using the poetic form “Rimas Dissolutas.” The choice of topic
is entirely up to you.
If you watch the Charade clip posted above first, you may comprehend my illogical poem a little bit more! 😄
