as walking long upon the strip
into side streets of side streets
where intoxicating florentine waftings
announced our dinner plans for us

the beautiful one starts to smile
and one more sun-drenched day’s adventure
turns to night’s enchantment near
to scenes of warmth and contact


risotto mysteries and
white wine invitations
that crown departing day
in the clothing of elegance
