The Bay Of Naples

Naples Sea, you're amazing at night
With the Zephyr's scarf unrolled,
When your blue, crystal waters of light
Suffuse the moon with gold.

In a charming night how I love to float
On those dormant waves of yours,
And observe Vesuvius from a small boat
Smoke into the celestial gauze,

Or watch Naples sleep under your caresses,
Or gaze at the lifeless Pompeii Forum,
And exchange loud kisses with Apsarases
Arm in arm with your sweet indecorum.
