My PARIS VACATION: re-visiting the Eiffel Tower for the 10th time

EIFFEL1How would you describe GUSTAVE EIFFEL’s architectural masterpiece in 35 words or less?  TORONTO communication strategist and writer LOUANN BUHROWS manages do so in 32.  Originally her poem was a celebration of our city’s Second Empire style George Brown House on Beverley Street, but it fits the Eiffel Tower to a “T”.

The beauty of your lines,
Your curves, draws me
You arch over me
An infinite grace
Carved in exultation
I reach out with my eyes
As you induce me
Achingly beyond touch.
