Florence seemed so innocent from above,
Encompassed within the mountainous scene.
Faint whispers spoke of mystery and love,
It was beauty—unfolding like a dream.

A mesmerizing spirit choked the air,
Stealing the hearts of those who took a glance.
Passionate auras, none that could compare,
Begging, aching for you to take a chance.

Murals, statues spoke of centuries past,
Secrets masked within their hypnotic scenes.
Long ago, these figures abandoned their last,
Hopes, torments, and mysteries in between.

What lies in Firenze to discover?
Ancient sighs hold the key to uncover.

The author's comments:
I recently had the opportunity to travel to Italy and experience the wonderful cities there. Florence, Firenze in Italian, was one city that was absolutely striking in all areas--the culture, the people, the whole environment and aura that the city proclaimed! I wrote of the sensations that spoke to me through the life of the city. I would like to share my experiences with others because few are able to receive the opportunity I was blessed with!
