It was love at first sight when I visited Florence last year during my Christmas holidays. A day before I was to leave Florence, unbidden some words flowed out of me, because only through those words could I encapsulate what I felt for Florence.
It had been whispered,
And I had heard.
I had read,
And my mind had conjured.
But Florence, you are a beauty to behold,
To be walked, felt, experienced.
The sun has now set,
A full moon now looks over;
And as I look over you,
The Duomo bells toll,
Tolling my having fallen in love with you.
