Views of Jeopardy

Painting by Frederic E. Davis

Views of Jeopardy:

The bridge was small and stone white
And called the Pont au Change
Or the Pont Louis Phillippe.
We went home at midnight
To the Ile Saint Louis as deer
Through a rustle of bells.
Six years distant
And the Atlantic
And a continent.
The way I was then
And the way I am now.
A long time.
