Venice – walking on water
When you first see Venice shimmering
in the sun, it is a city walking on water.
Your first inclination demands you weep
and if heaven is a more endless sight
then only those with broken hearts may enter.
The complexion of angels,
rose strewn and blood dried the walls,
while arched bridges, lascivious, drape themselves
like artists models over the water streets
sirens to draw your very soul!
Sublime, quiet, candid.
So much about Venice is elegant
