Paris, poems about Paris
Paris, the city of light, la Ville-Lumière

Poems about Paris, the most beautiful city in the world and the city of light, la Ville-Lumière. Sometimes it’s called, erroneously, the city of lights, like lightbulbs, street illumination, but that’s wrong. The city of lights is Lyon, la Ville des Lumières, Paris got its appellation from the time of the Enlightenment (here is the light idea), as if the city of Light in figurative sense, the city of ideas and new thoughts.  It is also possible that Paris (or Πάρις) of the Trojan war has fame slipped in as well.
