Subject(s): France; Memory


The little shop near Pere-la-Chaise
That held the little bed
That had two shelves -- were they for books? --
Built straight across its head;
It was expressly made for you,
Expressly, Madame said --
Do you remember?

The little shop at Rochefort,
Just off the market place,
With the high stone steps where Madame sat
Forever making lace;
She made me buy a copybook
You said was a disgrace,
A little oilcloth book --
Do you remember?

The little shop at Croissic
With its window on the quay,
All crowded, full of Breton cups
Bepainted gaudily,
And the little ship we longed to buy
And couldn't; so we said
That just to please Madame we'd take
The little saint instead --
Do you remember?
Shut your eyes and think.
And please remember.
