In You The Earth

at times,
tiny and naked,
it seems
as though you would fit
in one of my hands,
as though I’ll clasp you like this
and carry you to my mouth,
my feet touch your feet and my mouth your lips:
you have grown,
your shoulders rise like two hills,
your breasts wander over my breast,
my arm scarcely manages to encircle the thin
new-moon line of your waist:
in love you loosened yourself like sea water:
I can scarcely measure the sky’s most spacious eyes
and I lean down to your mouth to kiss the earth.

Beautiful survey of Genoa by Oscar Wilde in a sonnet is nice to read!
beautiful pleasing description onVilla Di Negro Rosazza dello Scoglietto within holy feelings of its lighthouse
Count yourself lucky if you can say you've at least once spent Hellenic hours in a sunny spot where all memory of our bitter pain is drowned in a warm sea.
Sonnet written in Holy Week at Genoa [Sonetto scritto durante la Settimana Santa, a Genova] __________________________________________ I wandered in Scoglietto green retreat, The oranges on each o’erhanging spray Burned as bright lamps of gold to shame the day. - - Andavo errando nel verde rifugio dello Scoglietto, - - Su ogni ramo le arance - - Ardevano come lampade lucenti di oro a vergogna del giorno. And the curved waves that streaked the sapphire bay Laughed i’ the sun, and life seemed very sweet. - - E le onde curve che striavano la baia di zaffiro - - ridevano nel sole, e la vita sembrava molto dolce.
