Tribute to Tuscany
In old Tuscany, this form of poetry
To stimulate the imagination's muse,
Has been passed down through every century,
all writers whom the written words enthuse.
Even yet today, some vineyard covered hill,
Hung with clustered
grapes, romantic souls instill
With a deep desire to try their hand once more
And resurrect a page from history's lore!

Anita, lovely poetess,
sees nature's beauty all around,
feels wind of summer's soft caress,
and hears the magic
in its sound.
She sits to write in quiet hours
when from her realm of thought sweet flowers
spring forth! She plucks and
sets them free
as lyric words of poetry.
