My love for you is like a red, red… paddock?
Something like that. I can’t help but think of the Robert Barnes song My Love is Like a Red Red Rose when I think of this popular romantic spot in Paris: The Pont de l’Archevêché. The famous bridge, in the shadow of the Notre Dame, is better known by the moniker “The Love Bridge.”
The bridge is so named because couples swoon on it as they secure a paddock on the palisade, then in a bout of l’amour foli, (crazy love) they throw the key into the Seine. The paddock represents the eternal love that the two people share. Tossing the key into the Seine means that (unless the Marie of Paris wants to remove all the padlocks by jaws of life) that the relationship can never be erased, undone, or to complete the metaphor, unlocked.
