VIGNETTES OVERSEAS: 8. FLORENCE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The bells ring over the arno
Last Line: He gives eternity.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Florence, Italy


The bells ring over the Arno,
Midnight, the long, long chime;
Here in the quivering darkness
I am afraid of time.

Oh, gray bells cease your tolling,
Time takes too much from me,
And yet to rock and river
He gives eternity.
