Poem for August


Postcard from South America 

Venice!
City of calm, clear canals,
of graceful, gliding gondalas,
of shimmering, shining ships!

Ah, Venice!
City of beautiful bridges and buildings,
of ancient, elegant art,
of fantasy, fable and fame!

Yes, Venice would have  been nice!
If only we’d checked the boarding gate twice!
Venezuela is not quite the same.
