    There Are No Words Paris is beautiful and wins. Nick Matthews. National Poet ("When Will We Ever Learn?" New WW1 poems and images on AMAZON) There are no words that touch the hearts of those That like to know how close we are. But when the sunlight glistens on the Seine We dance in Paris bars and merry on. “What does this horde of slaves Of traitors and conspiratorial devils want?” They have no minds and hearts And fail in every part to halt our lives. In summer breeze Horizon Angels sparkle In our eyes and Paris fun transports Our minds to golden sun in busy markets And happy byways on the heights. On winter nights we dress in sunny clothes And eat at lively restaurants with Lovely music in our ears All full of light and Joy! In Paris, look at us in restaurants on boulevards Long shaded from the Easter sun We dance all night to dawn And love the moment more than anyone. We danced till two while making friends with People that we didn’t know and laughed along The way to home and warmth To hug our Paris that we love. We found the byways warm in France Which led us in a mystery to new discovered places That we took for love and there a river full of Tumbled magic stones which is forever ours. We claimed it one hot afternoon And hold it in our arms when dressing up for Party fun we can be anyone Because we know just who we are and where we go
