Paris, France

There’s a word for peace in every tongue.
Bring them together.  You feel among
those who see: the future of Earth as conflict-free.
In the background lurks the Eiffel Tower,
now a symbol of Euro-power.
Beginning life as a rallying point
for a Paris fair that did not disappoint,
'la tour Eiffel' has now emerged:
emblem of Europe newly purged
of constant strife, now pointing the way
to the peaceful life. [2005]
