About This Poem

 

“A few years ago, I lived in Villefranche-sur-Mer while taking an intensive course in French. From my apartment high on a cliff overlooking the bay, I could see cruise ships regularly anchor and ferry their passengers to shore, while from our classroom window we watched the French firefighter planes, which appeared to dive into the sea and rise up again into the sky.”
