Last Line: Browning, next week, may find himself quite brown!
Subject(s): Venice, Italy

SIGHED Rawdon Brown: "Yes, I'm departing, Toni!
I needs must, just this once before I die,
Revisit England: Anglus Brown am I,
Although my heart's Venetian. Yes, old crony --
Venice and London -- London's 'Death the bony'
Compared with Life -- that's Venice! What a sky,
A sea, this morning! One last look! Good-by,
Ca Pesaro! No, lion -- I'm a coney
To weep! I'm dazzled; 't is that sun I view
Rippling the ... the ... Cospetto, Toni!
With carpet-bag, and off with valise-straps!
Bella Venezia, non ti lascio piu!"
Nor did Brown ever leave her: well, perhaps
Browning, next week, may find himself quite Brown!
