A DEFINITIVE HISTORY OF VENICE

BACINO DI SAN MARCO

 

From the Daniele’s restaurant terrace,

a bride and groom watch a shower of rain,

against the deep blue of the sky, approach

from the Adriatic, fall on the Lido,

San Lazzaro, La Giudecca, become

a foil for San Giorgio Maggiore,

La Dogana, La Salute, disappear

out of sight, somewhere over the lagoon.

 

As the late afternoon sun glows on wet

marble and the monogamous swifts return,

the man exclaims, ‘What a view we’ve got!,’

but the woman, ‘The light!’
