Impressions of Venice
The story behind the poem

Although we now live in Italy, this poem derives from my only visit to Venice which was 20 years prior to the move. I toured the city with an old University friend who knew it well, and was able to soak up the atmosphere in out-of-the-way places as well as heavily-frequented ones. Although I found the city beautiful and exciting, it lacked - for me - the grounded quality which might have made me want to live there. It seemed somehow precarious, artificial. Nonetheless, I would like to go there again to see if my impressions are any different on a re-visit.
