Roma – Free Verse May 25, 2014

Roma:
Oh how I long,
To walk along the Tiber at dawn
Nostalgic and passionate,
Castel Sant’Angelo would beckon:
“Cross the bridge … come!”
A carriage awaits near the Spanish Steps
For a romantic evening ride,
Or I’d splash in the Trevi Fountain
At midnight …
Your call is like a siren’s song:
“Come … I miss you, and you me …”
Sighing I dream,
Of  walking down your streets,
Though I love my mountains dearly,
Seeing you would make my heart soar.
From the first hills of Sette Bagni
To Termini my heart would begin to sing:
“Here my love, I am again!”
Eternal city
My first love,
Amor!

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
