A Poem for Paris by the Editor

The Beacon

Lovers, artists, writers, poets
are drawn to Paris. 
Just as the Trojan hero
for whom the city is named
captivated Queen Helen
Paris captivates the imagination
of the creative and the beautiful
and always will. 

How many of us
have dreamt of visiting Paris?
That dream is not a nightmare
despite the recent rending of her peace.
The Nazis could not destroy her.
Neither will the jihadists.
