Pronto! Bencistá


Pronto! Bencistá

“Pronto! Bencistá!”
She answers my call
Mama di Bencistá, Beatrice,
gracious, generous
loving and kind
Her guests are her family
Her staff, her friends.
It’s a good job
           The people, they come back
           I know them
           They are good people
           Some say the carte is limited
           They want many choices
           I choose
           This is our dinner
           We start in the morning
                      Make everything fresh
           There is no waste this way.
She takes care of the people
She takes care of the home
She glances over her shoulder, behind her and
Sees my friend in the sitting room.
 You are not a small man.
           This chair is for you
Delicately deliberate
She shows him to a good, solid chair.
Her home is our home
We are as family.

Arrivederci, Beatrice!
Arrivederci, Bencistá!

When will we find our way

Y.’s only poem composed in Italia


Today we reopened the Pensione, and receiving your poem on this day means a lot to me.
It’s like a special gift and a good wish for the new season.

It is so kind and so nice of you to send this poem to me. Your thoughts are giving me lots of joy and strength to carry on .

I am looking forward to seeing you again.
Sorry if my english is not good enough to tell  you  how much I enjoyed reading your poems.

Yesterday it was my birthday and it is a great present for me to receive your message.
I am looking forward to welcoming you again
A big hug
