The Medici Fountain
Jardin du Luxembourg

This quiet space is found just east of the Sénat 
with the closest garden entrance at Place P. Claudel.  
The garlands of ivy on the long sides of the pool 
provide a respite from the otherwise crowded garden.  

Even when all of these chairs are filled, 
there is a hush and reverence, 
perhaps a tacit understanding by those who come here.  

It is one of my favorite quiet places in Paris

bon weekend
