Beauty Shines

Torn and nibbled,
not one undamaged leaf remains.
Frost-rimed in the morning,
and then rain-drenched all day.
Beset, bewildered and bedraggled,
yet they shine.
Inner beauty shines.

Paris, you shine. Nothing anyone does can take that from you. From your diversity to your bridges, churches, parks, islands, to your museums divine, you shine. Vive la France!!
