My Vacation

My Vacation
Five decades since I’d seen her, and from a distance, I can see she hasn’t changed much, ever the lady.

Although I know the years haven’t been kind, with grace and elegance her head held high she remained unbowed.

 The Lady aged well; yes, there is something about the French.

 A reflection of the perfect hostess, welcoming all with dignity and hope.

I stood staring in wonder and awe as I did at thirteen.
