The Seine is lucky. She has no worries. She flows softly, day and night. And she comes from her source gently, quietly, without getting out of bed. And...she goes to the sea passing through Paris...and...walks between the quays in her beautiful green dress and her golden lights.

- Jacques Prévert, "Chanson de la Seine"

Elaine Sciolino is writing a book about the Seine river which is to be published in 2019. Pre-orders are not yet available, but you can follow the writing process on Elaine's Instagram account, @elainesciolino.

In the meantime, here's a complication of songs about the Seine, some beautiful, some cheesy, some sad, some cheerful; all telling stories of the Seine, the heart of France.
