Kansas City Beautiful ~ Poems About the Places We Love

Drawings by Esther Boquist.

VERONA COLUMNS.

Luxuriant verdure crowns the peaceful hills
Encircling a glen by nature blest,
And art's eternal mission here fulfills
The longing of the heart for beauty's quest.
Tall columns brought from Venice by the sea,
Enwrought by artists on Italia's strand,
With fluted urn and statue's legendary,
Lend splendor to the terrace they command.
A fountain, pedestaled by sculptured swans,
Lies mirrored in a pool with silver moon;
Verona Columns, loved by trysting fauns,
And fountain, with the mocking bird in tune,
How we are haunted, as your beauty we adore,
By sunny vistas of your native shore!
