Vignettes Overseas: Naples

Nisida and Prosida are laughing in the light,

Capri is a dewy flower lifting into sight,

Posilipo kneels and looks in the burnished sea,

Naples crowds her million roofs close as close can be;

Round about the mountain's crest a flag of smoke is hung—

Oh when God made Italy he was gay and young!
