Paris, Usa - Poem by Helen B. Norton

Pleasure seekers of festive fun,
Fantastic romance awaits you:
New Orleans fabled Southern charms
Entice under canopy blue
French Quarters: gumbo, jambalaya;
Flaming fountains of Bourbon Street;
Creoles on iron laced balconies;
Rhythmic jazz and dancing feet
Flippant, fancy, jeering, jesting,
Elegant Mardi Gras in view:
Ponchartrain, fishing, wharfs,
"Natchez" boat, Mississippi Float
Endless shining bayou.
