Venice - Poem by Jason Palmer

I never knew
A place could be
Better than you hope
Out at dawn to catch
The iconic movement
Dawn at the lagoon
Gondoles clinking, waves lapping

The light is true
The moment pure
Uncapturable delight
But one can see
Why artists try
A city under constant repair
Frozen in time
Thanks to Ruskin
Inspired by Byron

Art lovers paradise
Empty churches art
Put Galleries to shame
Water, boats
Art, Jazz galore
A fine beach
Lovely fruit market

Now I know
Now I see
Why so many came
And found a reason
To return
Byron, Turner, Ruskin
And now me
We all agree
