This poem was written by Dee Nagy, of Norwalk, CT.

I had recently met Dee and I had written a story about her called, "Italian American in Norwalk, CT".

Dee shared this poem with me. Although this poem is written by Dee Nagy, she has given me permission to place her poem on my website. The poem reflects her thoughts, desires and dreams of going to Italy someday. Enjoy Dee's poem, and let's keep our fingers crossed for her.

I did not make any changes to this poem as it is Dee's creative work. It is straight from Dee's heart, so I would not change a thing!

The screen door clanked as it closed itself.

She stood, looking and thinking.

A breeze blew.

It was warm and gentle.

Oh, so soft and gentle.

Yet, at the same time, powerful.

 

 

It brought with it the soothing sound of Santa Lucia and her heart filled with love.

Love for the peace and beauty of her surroundings.

Olive groves and green hillsides beyond the balcony where she stood.

Where the breeze kissed her cheek and caressed her hair.

The sky was so blue, bluer than the eyes of the man she would never meet.

Someday she thought, someday.

As she turned from the old, wooden railing,  and faced her aluminum kitchen door she thought,

Someday I will visit Italy.

My mind and my heart have been there, but one day the whole of me will go.

 

-Dee Nagy

Be always safe,
