Reading Poetry at the Palace

Several times a day Mummy and I walk through the gardens of the Palais Royal, where I am staying in Paris. One of the interesting things that we have discovered in the garden are these green metal “les confidents” chairs. It took a little investigation but one of the boutique owners was kind enough to tell us more about them, then we researched a bit more… and here is what we found: an artist and sculptor named Michel Goulet took old French park chairs and redesigned them into 10 poetic LOVE SEATS! Each seat faces the other and has a short verse from a poem cut into the back of the chair. Where the chairs are joined together, there is a solar-powered portal where you can plug your headset and listen to the entire poem. Many of them are read by well-known French actors. Goulet said he did this so that poetry would be available to more people! Mummy is searching for her earplug set so that she can try out the LOVE SEAT with little me.  Isn’t this just the most romantic idea EVER?!?!?!!! ❤️??????

It’s not exactly the same of course but it reminds me of kissing benches.
