LE BAISER DE L’HÔTEL DE VILLE

Inspired by:

Jacket buttoned against the Paris chill,

Scarf and hair blown by the wind,

Cigarette held in his palm toward his wrist,

Uncaring of the crowds,

Just the girl and the kiss,

Upon a café pavement,

A stolen moment for all to share,

Captured by a camera,

That neither knew was there,

Arms by her side,

Taken by surprise,

He clasps her to his body,

Claims her for his prize,

Her eyes shut tight,

Wanting so much,

The woman in her girlish frame,

Yearning for his touch,

The innocence of a lovers kiss,

Is there for all to see,

Held within a photograph,

For all eternity.
