Paris

2 of 12 in the Jemverse “The Bucket List” series

We climbed the Eiffel Tower
by the steps not by the lift
with energy and stamina
right there within our gift
And the view of Paris from the top
was worth the climb indeed
made better by the going down
we later did at speed

Notre Dame and Pompidou
and a boat trip on the Seine
Champs d’Elysees, L’arc de Triomphe
to Montartre on the train
The first tick off our bucket list
Eighteen years now past
We’d gladly do that all again
as Paris was a blast
