Dianne at Sixteen

lost on our first night in Paris
she stayed calm, ordered crepes
smeared with coconut and nutella
then later on strolling Montmartre
bought fingerless gloves,
and a blue hat with a tassel
skipped the Eiffel Tower
and a float down the Seine
but couldn't miss Père Lachaise
or the museum of Salvador Dali
passed up the catacombs
to shop at Galeries Lafayette
and look down on the Palais Garnier
