Paris - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

Just written media August 2011, for Poetfreak.

Recently last July I was invited by a good friend to come to Paris.
When still living in the tropics I loved to study Beaux Arts in Paris, but....since I was the only girl (be noted: my big bro was the only boy....LOL...) , my mom forbade me, I may not study in Heidelberg either! Since then Paris had become its home in my head, I really enjoyed my very first visit to Paris, I was really very excited...and last July I was back again in Paris, this time I was invited....all previous times I invited myself...

Paris was my first Love
so excited for the first time
I thank God above, my love
have met Paris again and a good rhyme

Paris was my first Love
but not my last
I forget sometimes the Present
but I'll never do that with the Past

Poet's Notes about The Poem

PARIS was constantly in my head, when I had my home still at my parents'. When I had my first flight to abroad, to Amsterdam, I made a stopover at Paris (for a couple of days, long enough to enjoy the beautiful view, to breathe the artistic air and to visit Place du Tertre, Mont Marte, Sacre Quoeur, Quartier Latin and more coziest places. Not to forget La Tour Eiffel. When I visted The Light City for the first time, my excitement was undescribable!
