Romance & Père Lachaise: Messrs. Wilde, Champollion, Güney & Morrison – Revisited

(3 customer reviews)


JD Morgan wrote this story as a tribute to his life-long friend and confidante, ‘Ollie’, who could not believe his luck when Lizzie, a former Miss UK candidate, fell head over heels in love with him for no apparent reason! At face value, all appeared to be going swimmingly well, until, that is, ‘Ollie’ decided to book a romantic week in ‘Gay Paree’, which went according to plan until he felt compelled to make an unplanned visit to the world-famous Père Lachaise Cemetery just a few hours before their flight back to London… (3,380 words)


Père Lachaise Cemetery has become the final destination point and resting place of a plethora of poets, painters, philosophers and performing artists all of whom, in their own unique way, have contributed towards the enhancement of the arts, music and literature that is still enjoyed today. May the originality of their creative spirits and the imagination of their sensitive souls rest there peacefully, but still be free to roam for Eternity…

In that short, brief period of his life almost eighteen years ago, it seemed to Oliver that all roads weren’t leading to Rome, but Paris! He’d met Elizabeth, whom he called Lizzie, the year before and, since then, they’d visited the City of Lovers three times in as many months for long, lustful weekends of eagerly anticipated Parisian passion. These had been illuminated by the glittering lights of the Champs Elysée, as they’d enjoyed eager, early nights, followed by lazy, luscious, late morning lie-ins. Basically, they were indulging themselves in the age-old cliché of that city’s sexual liberation as it lives and breathes within the intoxicating atmosphere of Le Louvre, Versailles, Notre Dame and, of course, Montmartre. They’d both relived its halcyon days – La Belle Époque, Toulouse-Lautrec, Le Moulin Rouge and, as star-crossed lovers sitting on the steps in front of the Basilica of Sacré Cœur, they imagined the brightest and best of America’s Literati and Europe’s artistes drawing, dancing and drinking their way through the Roaring Twenties – doing just the same as they were both doing right then, at that very time, in that very same place, in that very same city…
