Paris Pirouette

This fountain is in the town square of Paris, Texas. I did a little dance around it today and well, let me tell you about it in this poem:

Paris, Texas
Ain’t no Paris, France
But I traveled through it
Earlier today
And can now say
In Paris
I have danced
Under a blue sky
In the middle of the day
The autumn leaves
Whispering in the wind
Watching me play
Around a 1927 fountain
To one of my favorite
Country tunes
That expresses one of my truths
I’ve still got a
Lot of leavin’ left to do

E.A. Fussell
