If you have visited or read about Paris
then you already know there are secrets
to be found everywhere,
and this charming hotel
we discovered on Place Des Vosges
in the Marais was one of my favorites.

From Liberty London Girl,
I learned about this magical suite
inside with giant amazing lithographs!
I would very much like to
visit this gorgeous space someday.

From Bonjour Paris:
“At the headboard was a huge lithography (a fac similé) in the handwriting of Arthur Rimbaud from his work Une Saison en enfer. In the suite’s massive living room under a black ceramic Italian chandelier is Pierre Ambroise Choderlos de Laclos’ handwritten segment from Les Liaisons Dangereuses. It is hardly an irony that John Malkovich favors this suite on his visits to the city. The hotel has a prized guest book with comments from notables.”
So captivated by this suite,
I stayed up until the wee hours
at our paris apartment
reading about Rimbaud’s work,
awed by his story,
desperate to know more.
This is one trance Paris threw me into.
Our apartment was located near the
Sorbonne, so perhaps so much
academia and bohemia
in the atomosphere-emia
seeped into our brain cells.
Maybe this sort of research
rings less than romantic for you,
but a creatively intellectual
adventure into history
and literature while
under the influence
of good red and
I’m still marinating in this
inspiration and plan to
do something clever
Je t’aime, Le Pavillon de La Reine!
Someday, it will be me and you.
