Cimetière de Passy

Just across the way from Trocadéro and the stunning view of la Tour Eiffel 
(and the throngs of people) 
is this quiet cemetery with its own stunning view of la Tour.  
As you walk the narrow shaded paths, 
the chatter of  the many tourists 
along with hawkers of Eiffel Tower key chains 
cannot be heard.

The muffled sounds of the caretaker 
going about his daily maintenance 
and the songs of birds 
will accompany you on a walk 
through the rows of crypts, tombs and markers.
