Sunday in Montparnasse

Sunday in Montparnasse

A gentle Sunday stroll along
the Boulevard Montparnasse

stopping for coffee in La Coupole
before cutting across into

the Jardin du Luxembourg
where we sat for a while and

watched the families passing by
the sound of children’s laughter

and of the gravel under their feet
Life was so simple that day

and love too— or so it seemed
when the sun shone on us
