Une Invitation au Voyage
Viennese Moments

Mon enfant, ma soeur,
Songe à la douceur

Aimer à loisir,
Aimer et mourir

Au pays
qui te ressemble!

Les soleils mouillés
De ces ciels brouillés

Les miroirs profonds,
La splendeur orientale,

Tout y parlerait
À l'âme en secret
Sa douce langue natale.

  1. Ah nous parlons Française aujourd'hui. Formidable!

  2. Merisi, I will linger here for a while enjoying the quiet serenity of your invitation. Perhaps tomorrow I will set forth to those other intriguing locations.

    Many thanks for adding to my possible destinations.


  3. Thanks for the tour! Great shots to enjoy with my morning coffee! Hope your week is going well! Enjoy!

  4. I am reading Plum Blossoms in Paris right now. It has some very nice verbal snapshots of that European city.

  5. Tu parles français Merisi ! Je pourrais mieux t'exprimer l'admiration que j'ai pour Vienne, (je ne peux m'empêcher d'écrire "Wien", son vrai nom), et pour l'Autriche. Un merveilleux pays, je trouve ses paysages féeriques, et ses villes également. Quant à tes cafés dans les Wiener Cafés c'est purement magique...
    Merci Merisi,

  6. Hello from Zagreb! Thank you for the wonderful blog with inspirational pictures of Vienna. Every year I visit Vienna with my family, kids love it! My husband and I always feel special there! I am an interior designer and journalist for Elle Decoration Croatia, so I'm going to come next month with my camera in Vienna to make a nice story. If you can suggest me some inspiration, I'd be grateful. Wish yu all the best! Vesna
