VIGNETTES OVERSEAS: 3. NAPLES, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Nisida and prosida are laughing in the light
Last Line: Oh when god made italy he was gay and young!
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Naples, Italy

Nisida and Prosida are laughing in the light,
Capri is a dewy flower lifting into sight,
Posilipo kneels and looks in the burnished sea,
Naples crowds her million roofs close as close can be;
Round about the mountain's crest a flag of smoke is hung--
Oh when God made Italy he was gay and young!
