TUSCAN OLIVES: RISPETTO 6, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Who would have thought we should stand again together

Subject(s): Love; Olive Trees And Olives


Who would have thought we should stand again together,
Here, with the convent a frown of towers above us;
Here, mid the sere-wooded hills and wintry weather;
Here, where the olives bend down and seem to love us;

Here, where the fruit-laden olives half remember
All that began in their shadow last November;
Here, where we knew we must part, must part and sever;
Here, where we know we shall love for aye and ever.
