Beautiful Italy

I stood on top the leaning tower of Pisa
And watched as the tourists walked by.
I felt just a little bit closer to heaven
When surrounded by her bells in the sky.

I visited Rome in the springtime,
With its colorful flowers galore.
Seeing Saint Peters sparkle in sunlight,
You couldn't ask for much more.

I have ventured down and around
A narrow cobblestone street,
And marveled at ruins near the edge of the city
Where the old and new come to meet.

While viewing the beautiful fountain of Trevi
And watching as young lovers kissed,
I could feel the cool breezes blowing
As the fountain caressed my face with its mist.

I remember the wonder of Michelangelo's David
And the pigeons that flocked to his arms.
How proudly he stands in the city of Florence
With her glorious art that defines her charms.

Beautiful Italy, where rolling hills of 
Vineyards produce the finest wine,
And its grapes so plump and juicy
Can withstand the test of time.

In Venice, the city of romance,
Where lights in the evening dance on the sea;
Where all of one's cares seem to vanish,
And all of your worries will flee.

Oh beautiful Italy,
Where lover’s dreams come true.
A land of love and romance
Where I fell in love with you.

Italy - for "Somewhere Over the Rainbow Contest" by Debbie Guzzi

    This is so lovely Connie, it makes me envious to not have been able to go there as I would love to have been able to see a few places in Europe. But when all is said and done, home is the best of all isn't it and Hawaii is so beautiful. I did get to go there! Luv, Lizzie

    Tribute to a beautiful place. In my travels with the Navy, I've been lucky to have been there a few times.

    Congratulations, Connie on your well-deserved win in Deborah's Guzzi's contest, " Somewhere Over The Rainbow." Your description of Italy is very accurate, since I had lived there my entire childhood. Yes, Italy is a land of love and romance! Thanks for your kind comments. I wish you success in your future writing endeavors. God bless you always. Love and hugs, Andrew.
