Rue Galilée

 Next Poem          

Why has no one ever sung the rue Galilee
rue Galilée full of dahlias
rue Galilée full of hydrangeas
rue Galilée with noble pediments
rue Galilée loved by pedestrians
rue Galilée lined with canals
rue Galilée adored by cars
rue Galilée terrible beauty
rue Galilée which is really she
whom I must sing
in prose and in verse
to all the Universe
rue Croix-Nivert
