Neither the skyline of the city Light
Nor the moon lighted waters of her Aisles
Neither the scope of Exhibitions’ height
Nor the nearly six score count of her Isles
Neither her son’s treatment of the Seasons
Nor the history of Invasion’s guiles
Neither the Traveler’s many reasons
Nor the opulence of Carnival’s masks
Neither the fate of a Doge’s Treasons
Nor the villa’s Gardens in which one basks
Neither the Bridges down which peasants file
Nor Holy Blood of God purchased by cask  
 
Can match what do your Eyes now set aright
Can match how places lived count Naught outright
Without your Smile, your Touch, Presence by night.
