Postcards Home (1958)

We have spent
a most wonderful two days here

and are nearly roasted
with the heat.

It gives one a thrill to see
all these old wonderful places.

We came via Pisa
and climbed the tower

which gave me a queer feeling
it leans over at such an angle.

We may go on to Naples tomorrow.
We have stayed two nights here

at a super hotel
with every luxury,

complete with a shower
in a bathroom to ourselves.
