Bleus d’Automne

The sun is stealthy
and the pathway
a constellation of russet leaves

This Sunday a lady daydreams
under the linden trees
of the Tuileries

Her cerulean blue bag
possibly reminiscent of
certain birds, the ocean

She is level with Maillol’s work Les Baigneuses

You can make her out by the splashing pools

That’s her again on the lawns
of the Carrousel

And every time we turn round,
look further
we are amazed

Oh Bleus d’Automne!
