I land as my skiff touches ground By a façade of pink; and there, A pillar chaining it around, Next to a rising marble stair... Gondolas, palaces, her nights Of seaborne revels, sweet chagrin... Venice, with all her wild delights, Sings us that song and lives therein. A pizzicato plucked upon A fragile string... ∞Ω 32 Emaux et Camées, 1852–1872 III Carnaval Venise pour le bal s’habille.

Venice, with all her wild delights, Sings us that song and lives therein.
