Chateau de Roussan was advertized as an old hotel in Saint Remy,
a place where Nostrodomus spent time concocting some of his predictions
or so it was said. We found the grounds very special and enjoyed the
Canards which are different than the ducks we find around here. They
stand up straighter and seem to have an attitude. The pond was full of
large carp that were dark shadows swimming around with no apparent purpose.
On each corner of the pool was a nymph from years ago with no distinct features.
We enjoyed our stay but we coud see it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea.

Château de Roussan, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence
In the afternoon we came upon Saint-Rémy
It was a warm and sunny day
It was getting dark when we found Chateau de Roussan
The lights were just coming on
Shabby elegance we were told
But it was three hundres years old
Nostrodomus was reported to have stayed here
I don't remember the century or the year
