Ode To Italy


Italy land that I love. Italy land of my dreams.
Italy where the art of Florence is quite a sight.
Italy land where the isle of Capri shines bright.
Italy where the cities of Milan and Naples do bustle.
Italy land where the gondolas of Venice still hustle.
Italy where Rome and the Coliseum stand majestic.
Italy land where the vineyards and countryside of Tuscany
are beautifully rustic.
Italy where the Leaning Tower of Pisa still stands.
Italy land where Sicily and its people are grand.
Italy where pasta, wine, and cappuccino are the norm.
Italy land where opera is sung and new fashions are born.
Italy land that I love. Italy land of my dreams.
Viva Italia!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
