Christmas trees in Paris

Giggling on the first occasion of seeing 
Christmas trees dressed like sausages, 
I now find them totally charming.  

The stands made of split tree trunks are quite solid 
and they are ready to be carried off, 
through the Métro or by bus to a waiting Paris apartment.  

The scents of fresh evergreen are as omnipresent 
as those of the baguettes from the nearby boulangerie.
