April in Paris

never knew the charm of spring

I never met it face to face

I never knew my heart could sing

I never missed a warm embrace

Till April in Paris,

chestnuts in blossom

Holiday tables under the trees

April in Paris,  

This is a feeling

That no one can ever reprise

I never knew the charm of spring

I never met it face to face


I never knew my heart could sing

I never missed a warm embrace

Till April in Paris

Whom can I run to?

What have you done to my heart?
Thank you E.Y.Hargrave, Ella, Frank and Monk.
Thank you Paris for being so beautiful!

  5. Love your post today. The second song my mother taught me to sing when I was three was "I love Paris in the Springtime". No wonder I am the way I am. Have fun in Amsterdam. I look at Amsterdam on Livecams as long as several other capitals almost every day. I just keep adding cities I want to see.

  18. Good heavens, Carol, I've fallen in love with you all over again.
    I assume you created this post just for me, you romantic devil.

    When in Amsterdam please give my regards to Vincent, if you see any of his art.

    Springtime is a joy everywhere. I used to think that if I did not take a bus trip around the hills that surround Sorrento in spring, that it was not properly Spring...when I lived in Rome. Cherry blossom trees in flower everywhere and under the cherry trees the espaliered grape vines all newly green and under the vines, masses of red field poppies. Capri is covered in mauve wisteria, so romantically covering the stone walls and draping everywhere. There's the charm of Paris : flowers contrasting against old stone buildings and .....sunshine. I never visit in winter. Loved to see all the photos. Love your blog above all others. Gwendoline Blake, Ballarat, Australia.
