Feel the wind as it blows through hair

Freshens the senses, blows away dust 

Close your eyes, feel alive 

Strong and tall, mighty, robust 

Feel your body as senses awaken 

The wind sings to you 

It plays your own personal tune 

How do you like the brand new you? 

Blow away cobwebs, let nature cure

Keep your spirits high

The rain to wash, the sun for warmth 

And wind? To keep you free in the sky

Ciao Bella 

Espremute arancia, red tomatoes 

Vespas that go “beep beep”

The sun is hot, the verb I forgot 

La strada so busy, I can’t  sleep 

Gelato limone, nocciolo, Nutella

Cobbled streets make it hard to walk 

I forget the words, the verbs and phrase 

I struggle with the language, it’s hard to talk 

Arancini my favourite, risotto balls 

Simple yet oh so scrumptious 

Due cappuccini e due panini 

Wonder and look at the market stalls

The noise, the heat, the sea so blue 

The wine tastes of the sun

If you’re sad come here, in need of a beer?

But one rule applies, you gotta have fun!

Ato, ito, uto

Hook on to speak in the past 

Remember the formula and you’ll get by

Non ho capito, you speak so fast! 

Magic Carriage


, , , , , , ,

Whisk me away in a magical carriage 

Take me to see Cinderella 

Smashing pumpkins, mice become men 

Dancing cups with Beast and Bella 

Hold my hand, I’ll make you laugh 

Peter Pan says never grow old

Tinkerbell can make you fly 

The beanstalk beans have been sold

To be a princess, to kiss a frog 

To enjoy a carpet ride 

The boy whose nose grew very long 

“Why?” you ask, “well he lied!”

Wicked queens, happy endings

In my carriage I’m whisked away 

In a pretty dress, a slipper from glass

Then midnight strikes, but I still want to play
