Venice (aka Gondolier revisited)

by Jem Croucher

8 of 12 in “The Bucket List” series from Jemverse

Our gondolier sang songs
as he took us into shade
Cool waters in our gondola
combined with serenade

The ancient walls around us
and narrow waterways
Venetian history spoke to us
on this happiest of days

It was beautiful, exquisite
and we had a moment there
Tears of joy from what we saw
in Venice everywhere

The Teatro Romano
was lovely to find
as we traipsed up the steps
with the sea far behind
Up, up and climbing
to the top of the hill
Castello di San Giusto
awaiting us still

Sailing east from a sunset
as rich as could be
We continued our cruise
here in North Italy

and we waved a goodbye
as a moment we shared
with a tear in the eye

perfume fills the air

Toblino Castle – Rispetto Poem – Challenge

by Bastet

Rispetto poetry challenge

Toblino Castle - Trentino-Alto Adige  - Italy

Toblino Castle Italy

I

Beauty reflected in a lake …
Toblino Castle born in days of yore.
Like a dream yet I’m awake
Oh,  poet’s dream of chivalrous lore …
I walk in days of jets and drones …
Satellites and fancy plastic phones,
Yet, here you stand upon the water
Like an old king’s fancy daughter.
