Ciao Bella


Ciao Bella!
They said to my little girl
And I knew beauty looks the same
All around the world.

Ciao Bella!
But she didn't understand
All she knew was the smiling face
And the friendly hand.

Some things are a little foreign
Like crepes with fresh nutella
But friendliness is just like home
Ciao Bella!

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
