"To the Friends of the Tiber Valley"
... Tired soul, to you, flourishes
Austere and happy jumpers, you will come.
Famous river the short-story inundates;
Love the vines the hills; And, to retake
Sweet, among green oaks here is the blonde
Earl up at the aura astronaut waves.
But the old bully up the wreckage
Pork the cow and has a slow pace;
And the towers, huts,
It made the useful home to the pious villan ...
