What do you give the man you love on your wedding anniversary?
Well if you are walking by the centre Pompidou and you still haven’t found a gift and the day is drawing to a close, what could be better than a gift of words by a sweet street poet?
I was out with the fabulous Vicki Archer of French Essence and we both stopped in our tracks when we saw this guy with his old typewriter and lovely recycled paper of poems and love letters.
Antoine and I had a quick chat about my darling Francesco and our relationship, Vicki and I whipped off for a cup of tea and when we came back I had an old fashioned love letter for my darling.
Antoine Berard is a street poet and most days you can find him sitting outside the Centre Pompidou on the rue Rambuteau side where he will whip you up a poem on a beaten up old typewriter for you or your loved ones.
So to my darling Francesco Happy Anniversary. I so love having you by my side on this wonderful adventure called life. Us on the way to our wedding at the town hall in the 4th arrondissement.
PS; If there is any marvellous French/English translator out there I would love a great translation of my love letter. xx
An another note.. My eternal thanks for sharing the love entering my Naples A Way Of Love book giveaway.
