Lake Como~by Paul F. Lenzi



Lake Como


Lake Como Villa – Image From

confluent crystal blue rivers

emerge from pristine

glades of pre-alpine heights

infilling deep tracks of a

glacial retreat that left time

the slow usher of ambient

Mediterranean climate

clear water the purest and

plainest of elements

placidly courses beyond

thirsty reach of the peasantry

pooling itself in elongated

sunlit patrician geography

cypress aristocrats

gathered in groves

overseeing the lake

that gave beckon to caesars

impressed the nobility

down through the centuries

castles and villas serenely

seducing celebrity

into their present day cantons

chic outposts of luxury

fixing the daydreams of

those held by circumstance

lesser with fortune
